Many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and fungi are transmitted to plants by vectors. The Committee on Vector-Pathogen Complexes consists of APS members who have an interest in vector-pathogen-plant relationships and interactions. The goals of the Committee are to: i) Facilitate communications and enhance interactions among scientists active in research involving phytopathogen vectors of all kinds; ii) Promote interest in vector-pathogen interactions through sponsored symposia and societal functions; iii) Disseminate information useful to the committee members, the society, and relevant external entities; iv) Serve as a conduit between the American Phytopathological Society and the Entomological Society of America to bring together scientists belonging to both societies, and ultimately, between APS other relevant societies whose input and participation will enrich the mission and vision of the Vector-Pathogen Complexes Committee. This is a new APS Subject Matter Committee approved for establishment by APS Council in October 2010.
