From Prague for termites to Papua New Guinea

Sampling termite baits, completing collections and weighing organic matter from leaf collectors or taking termite samples, all and much more, was the goal of the expedition of representatives from the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences to Papua New Guinea (PNG). The trip was attended by Jiří Synek, Oto Nakládal and Jana Vokurková as part of the EVA 4.0 project. The journey to PNG began at the end of November last year and the survey lasted until 13th December, when the expedition returned to the Czech Republic.

What´s new in EVA 4.0? International collaboration on modeling insect invasions

As part of the EVA 4.0 project an international team of insect population ecologists is assembling at CZU to work on the use of mathematical models for identifying and managing newly invaded insect populations. The team consists of Dr. Takehiko Yamanaka (National Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences, Tsukuba, Japan), Yutaka Osada (Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan) and Andrew Liebhold, team leader EVA subproject 4, “Reconstructing global insect invasion dynamics”
