Basic aims:  The course is based on presentation and discussion of cases of study and scientific papers finalized to deepen the knowledge of biology, epidemiology and population dynamics of the most important pest and diseases of arable and fruit crops and forests. Regulations concerning the use of chemicals and biological control organisms will be used to propose sustainable pest and disease management strategies.
Acquired skills:  The students will learn how to approach the problems related to the pest and diseases management of the most important arable and fruit crops and forest plants, both within the frame of integrated and organic agriculture. They will know the rules and regulatory restrictions related to the development and use of chemicals and biological control organisms for the management of known and alien pests and diseases.
Course contents:  Case studies on the management of invasive pest insects will be detailed. The biology and dangerousness in relation to the environment of colonization will be detailed. Students will approach the different problems related to the management different invasive species both within the frame of integrated and organic control. Presentation and discussion of problems related to the consequences of uncorrect use of pesticides will be detailed (e.g. resistance to pesticides, trophobiosis, secondary effect on useful insects, colony collapse disorder).
