4) Forest Protection



Key Research Area

Eucalyptus pests and diseases, bark beetle associated fungus

 

Research directions include molecular genetic evaluation of evolutionary systems for forestry fungi and tree population genetic diversity and breeding for disease resistance. CERC’s Forest Protection team has published over 50 international journal and conference papers, including 19 papers in SCI listed journals, with the highest ranked journal published in having an impact factor of 5.9. Project involvement has included international cooperation projects with South Africa, the European Union and other countries; China’s National Natural Science Foundation projects and the Ministry of Science key projects.
