Dear Dr. Schonrogge,

I read your interesting article on insect-induced modifications of plant 
development in cynipid galls published in Plant Cell and Environment.

Recently the cynipid Dryocosmus kuriphilus was introduced in our region 
from Asia with infested chinese chestnut cuttings. We are thus studying 
several aspects of the infestation including the plant-pathogen 
interaction using molecular techniques.
I am thus searching contacts in Europe with Institutions involved in 
similar works. In case you are no more directly interested in 
plant-insect interaction, could you please indicate us a colleague still 
working on these gall wasp?
Thank you and kind regards

Roberto Botta
