Natural Products & Biocontrol 2014
24-26 September 2014, Perpignan, France
The activity of biocontrol products depend on numerous biotic interactions implying secondary metabolisms. The Natural Products and Biocontrol Congress covers the whole research about the natural components involved in biocontrol processes.
The natural compounds involved in interactions are exogene to the plant (active components of a vegetal extract, microbial metabolite, pheromons) or endogene (produced by a plant in response of an elicitor). Therefore the Congress also covers the research in the vegetal response to elicitors and phytostimulus. It is opened to scientists, technicians, industrials whose research are centred on biocontrol and natural products. The main points of the event open conferences, scientific presentations (spoken or displayed), one to one , discussions.
