3D Printing Could Help Save Avocado and Landscape Trees

The polyphagous shothole borer is a beetle that has a symbiotic relationship with a fungus (Fusarium euwallaceae). The beetle-fungus complex causes severe damage to avocado and landscape trees. As this video shows, researchers at the University of California, Riverside are using 3D printing technology to accelerate their study of the beetle-fungus complex. Produced by UCR’s…
