Current Research

My current work on oak wilt disease of live oaks will be phased out as these studies are completed.My research emphasis will shift into a new area involving the development of information and technologies for the detection and control of microbes causing lumber defect and volume losses in southern bottomland hardwoods.The principal research emphasis will focus on developing methods and procedures for the early detection and management of wood decay fungi, stain fungi, and other microbes causing lumber cull and tree mortality to minimize economic losses to the hardwood timber industry.
