This Annual Report highlights the key achievements and research highlights from the Bio-Protection Research Centre in 2013.
A recently released RSNZ report highlights the cost of pests to New Zealand's environment and economy.
We are developing innovative tools and principles to study the dynamics of biological invasions and make predictions about future pest, pathogen or weed threats.
We are exploring the relationships between plants, pests and their biological control agents in order to develop and improve natural ways of protecting plants and improving ecosystems.
We are establishing new strategies for molecular plant breeding, novel approaches to biological control and new tools for enhancing resilience of ecosystems.
In this seminar, Federico Rivas Franco will outline his PhD project proposal on developing a seed coating from entomopathogenic fungi for protecting crops from plant diseases and insect pests.
