  • Project aim

The projects aims at early recognition of pest infestation of the Asian Long-horned Beetle (ALB). The ALB is presumably introduced from China. In Europe it is seen as pest and ha to be put under quarantine. Since infested trees have to be logged and burned immediately in order to prevent the beetle from dispersal, it is important to find tree species that are prone to infestation, early recognize infested trees and model the dispersal of the beetle to effectively fight the pest.
