Scion is the leading provider of forest-related knowledge in New Zealand
Formerly known as the Forest Research Institute, Scion has been a leader in research relating to forest health for over 50 years. The Rotorua-based Crown Research Institute continues to provide science that will protect all forests from damage caused by insect pests, pathogens and weeds. The information presented below arises from these research activities.

From Forest Health News 109, July 2001.

Last month, Forest Health News reported on the interception and treatment of the pinewood nematode insect vector (Monochamus alternatus) in Queensland. Anyone seeking up to date information on the biology and impact of this nematode and its vector should consult:

The photograph of Monochamus in last month's issue was taken from the second web site (John A. McLean).
