Forest Entomology in Chile: An Example of U.S.-Chilean Cooperation
Abstract:Extensive acreages of cutover lands in Chile have been reforested with introduced tree species, principally Monterey pine, Pinus radiata D. Don. In 1967 personnel from the Chilean forestry agency started a forest entomology program with the aid of the U.S. Peace Corps. This paper describes how forest entomology in Chile has progressed since then to become a recognized discipline.
