Scion Connect - Issue 4
9 June 2023
In the June issue of Scion Connect, we recap activity from the Indigenous Plant Fibres Symposium, a world first achievement by our wildfire scientists and we reveal how technology is being used in the fight against myrtle rust.
In case you missed it, we also share coverage of our SmartForest research that shows how artificial intelligence is being used to support local authorities with decision-making in response to Cyclone Gabrielle. We profile the Timber Design Awards and as part of efforts to strengthen New Zealand’s biosecurity, we join the forestry industry in calling for more reports of suspicious imported wood products which might be infested with forest pests. We invite you to participate in a survey that’s seeking feedback on mountain biking in New Zealand forests and we want to hear your thoughts on the value of wood as a construction material.
Scion Connect provides an opportunity for us to share our news and successes more frequently and in a different format to Scion Connections, our magazine.
