This stream session was held from 17-21 June 2019 as part of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Week (APFW2019) at the Songdo Convensia Convention Center, Incheon, Republic of Korea, and was participated in by 15 countries. The participants included forest invasive species researchers, policy makers and delegates from the APFISN member countries, the Secretariat of APFISN, respective APFISN country focal points and other relevant experts and organization representatives.
It was a privilege to be part of this programme and I was so delighted to learn a lot from this research group. Through this training workshop, the participants were given the opportunity to learn the principles of forest pathology such as an overview of basic plant pathology, principles of disease management and control, disease survey and sampling methods, recognition of signs and symptoms caused by fungal pathogen as well as exposure to insect-vectored diseases.
The Asia-Pacific Forest Invasive Species Network (APFISN), together with its supporters and partners organized a “Training Workshop: Developing Skills In Forest Protection - An Integrated Approach,” from 23–27 October 2018 in Beijing, China.
