The official launch of the recently-published book “Important insect pests and diseases of Pinus and Eucalyptus in Colombia” by Dr Carlos Rodas and Prof. Mike Wingfield took place on the Microsoft Teams virtual platform on 4 March. The event, hosted by the Colombian forestry company Smurfit Kappa that also generously sponsored the production of the book saw Carlos introduce the book while Mike also thanked everyone for their support for this ambitious project. The book is the result of a 26-year-long professional research collaboration and friendship between the authors and an equally long research partnership between Colombian forestry company Smurfit Kappa and FABI.
