Forest health publications

Research on eucalypt health has to date focused predominantly on browsing insect pests, specifically Paropsis charybdis (the eucalypt tortoise beetle) and Paropsisterna cloelia (the eucalypt variegated beetle). NZDFI research is led by Associate Professor Steve Pawson, University of Canterbury School of Forestry. NZDFI also collaborates with specialists at Scion led by Dr Toni Withers.
