15th World Congress on Parasitic Plants, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The 15th World Congress on Parasitic Plants (WCPP) meeting took place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 30 June to 5 July. Over 110 participants attended the meeting from different parts of the world. The meeting was successful, scientifically and socially; and the location and the weather were beautiful! See Haustorium 76 for a report and www.wcpp2019.org for details, such as program and book of abstracts.

The success of the 15th WCPP is definitely also due to the generous support of our sponsors:
