Dear Forest Pathology and Forest Entomology friends
The PICTURE ALBUM of forest pathologists and forest entomologists has been refined and expanded gradually since it was first launched last year. In the last few days two pictures of our friend Giovanni Nicolotti who most tragically passed away suddenly... thanks to Paolo Gonthier for sending pictures for us to remember him by. Many of you have visited the list, sent photographs or annotations. Many thanks!! Thanks also to James Mehl at FABI who does most all the work to build this historical record for us.
Just as a reminder - you can access the list at http://www.fabinet.up.ac.za/resources/fpepg/album.
Do send photographs that you would like to include and if you would like to add annotations to existing photos - do send them. We would be happy to add them to the collection. If you are attending a forest pathology or entomology meeting, field day or other function - take photographs and send them to me. If there are large numbers, it will be easiest to put these on a disc and send them to my physical address below. Or try using one of the file sharing services such as "YouSendIt".
