Getting To The Root Of Pine Decline


This is a career profile of a scientist working in pine decline; available as both PDF and HTML. It would be a great reading as part of a career unit, or to learn about how scientists approach complex forest problems.

Dr. Lori Eckhardt uses hyperspectral interferometry to detect root disease caused by bark beetles. Her work shapes the way we manage pine forests, which are essential to the national economy. The resource includes an activity sheet, alongside some images of diseased roots and fungus.
