The Orange Catastrophe
When: Saturday 22 October at 10AM
Speakers: Prof David Mabberley
The world citrus industry could well collapse in the coming years. The history of the devastating disease responsible for this is explained in view of what this means for the sustainability of agricultural exports as well as native biodiversity in Australia on the one hand, and the frightening reliance of humanity on a minute range of the world’s plant resources on the other.
