PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Pest resistance and sustainable plantation management of eucalypts

Insect and vertebrate herbivores represent an important cost to eucalypt forestry. Our work aims assess the potential for breeding resistant trees in order to improve the viability of plantations especially in farm forestry.
