26.03-27.03.2013: WG3: Advances and prospects on monitoring and modeling of Drosophila suzukii in Europe, Wädenswil, Switzerland

This meeting was held at Agroscope Research Institute Changins-Wädenswil ACW and was organized by Jörg Samietz and Patrik Kehrli. See details of the meeting in the ‘Book of abstracts.

We were extremely sad to learn that two weeks later, Jörg Samietz, who was as well leader of the WG3 of this Action, passed away.


In memoriam

Dr Jörg Samietz
5 December 1969 – 11 April 2013


Dr Jörg Samietz was Head of the Zoology Research Group at Agroscope Research Institut. In his capacity as an entomologist he set up and managed national and international projects concerned with, for example, the forecasting and monitoring of pest infestation in orchards and the effects of climate change on agricultural pests. His tremendous professional and personal commitment to the company will be remembered. We will mourn his death and miss him as an enthusiastic and competent scientist and a helpful friend and colleague.

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to his family and wish them strength and faith to get through this painful time.
