Major International Forestry Award to FABI researcher

We have just been informed that Prof Jolanda Roux (FABI and Dept of Microbiology and Plant Pathology, UP) will receive the IUFRO SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENT AWARD at the next IUFRO World Congress to be held in Salt Lake City, USA, later this year. This is the highest scientific award that is given to forestry researchers by IUFRO and for which there is great competition. One award is presented every five years in each of nine categories - Jolanda will receive the award for research accomplishment in the field of Tree Health.  

This award is testimony to the international recognition of the research conducted by Jolanda and other staff members of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP) at FABI. This would not have been possible without major financial investments of the SOUTH AFRICAN FORESTRY INDUSTRY and the UNIVERSITY OF PRETORIA over many years. We thus thank the member companies of the TPCP and the University for their support to the programme.
