SPECIAL ISSUE: Fighting the Yellow Dragon- The War to Save Florida Citrus
The website Science 2.0 will host a special series of articles written by faculty from my department on the subject of Citrus Greening Disease. This disease, also known as Huanglongbing or HLB, is an insidious infection of the tree's vascular system, leading to death within years. This disease is in 90% of Florida's groves. You can access my pilot article here, and please follow the rest of the series. Most of all, share the stories with others. Awareness is an important step towards a solution.
