- List of Experts -

This list can be searched by an individual’s name, country or area of expertise, using the links below and your web browser's built-in "find" function. You can use your keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+F) for PCs and (Command+F) for Macs. The "find" function will highlight all appearances of a keyword. This works best when only one keyword is used in a search. Five buttons will link you to experts (listed alphabetically) in the following areas: Entomology; Genetics (includes breeding, scion and rootstock cultivar evaluation, tissue culture, taxonomy); Marketing (includes commercial and economic aspects of citrus production); Pathology; and Physiology (includes basic physiology, metabolism, horticulture, nursery bud wood, seed and plant propagation, crop production, nutrition, hormones/plant growth regulators, post-harvest physiology). You can conduct a more refined search within an area of expertise using the instructions above.
