Ale's last talks at Lexem 2016 and Accademia Nazionale Italiana di Entomologia
I recently gave two talks about the researches we are performing in Florence on the behavioural ecology of Vespa velutina, the Yellow-legged hornet (more info here).
At Lexem 2016, International Conference “FACING THE INVASION OF ALIEN ARTHROPODS SPECIES: ecology, modelling and control of their economic impact and public health implications” (website: http://events.unitn.it/en/lexem2016) I talked about "Contributing to the knowledge and management of the invasive hornet Vespa velutina: early warning tools, sexual communication and competition with native hornets".
On Friday 18-11, I've been giving an invited contribution at the Public conference “Avversità delle api e nuove minacce da insetti alieni per l’apicoltura italiana: Aethina tumida e Vespa velutina”organized by the Accademia Nazionale Italina di Entomologia (webiste: http://www.accademiaentomologia.it/Sedute-pubbliche.html).
