Summary: 

At this time, the pine wilt disease caused by the Bursaphelenchus xylophilus pine nematode is considered as the greatest European pinaceae threat. It has already caused huge devastation in Southwest Asia and Portugal. The main focus of this project is to progress on the disease integrated control in order to minimize the impacts described above.
