Mark record


Increased trade, transport, tourism and climate change result in the introduction into Canada of exotic pests that threaten the balance of forest ecosystems. To detect these pests before they become established and to prevent their spread, researchers at the Canadian Forest Service, in collaboration with Genevision Inc. (Warnex Inc.), have developed a simple diagnostic method based on the presence of the DNA of pests on the host plant.
