The Gnatwork brings together researchers on blackflies, sandflies and biting midges from around the world to address technical issues that arise when working on small biting flies.
Objectives are to:
- Create and maintain a community of blackfly, sandfly and biting midge researchers, based on shared technical difficulties;
- carry out annual meetings that promote the development of transferable skills and;
- fund studies within the community that will validate techniques and generate data to underpin future applications.
