"CREC is a great place .
to work," Dr. Kender told
the audience as he reminisced about his career.
He recalled that on his first day of work at
CREC. Dr. John Attaway showed him an
Orlando Sentinel story about possible
environmental and health risks of Temik, a
pesticide used by citrus growers. Thus, from
day one, he seemed to have one crises or
another on his hands
More crises followed, including citrus
canker, freezes, citrus tristeza virus, brown
citrus aphid, blight, groundwater contamination
issues, Diaprepes root weevil and others.
During his directorship. programs were
developed in these and
other areas of

after. Dr. Kender received calls about
evacuating the Center so the bomb squad
could relocate the chemical to a distant site
and "blow it up"! Amidst some excitement,
the Center was evacuated for a short time
and the chemical was destroyed.
Dr. Kender credited the "grcalt scientists"

War Against Diaprepes Wages On
Reports from the Annual Scientific Meeting
Over 80 growers, researchers and indus-
try personnel attended the Diaprepes Task
Force Annual Scientific Meeting on Febru-
ary 9 at the UF FAS Citrus Research and -I
Education Center (CREC) in Lake Alfred. .
The meeting was chaired by Clayton Mc-
Coy, CREC entomologist and Diaprepes
Task Force Scientific Coordinator.
The Diaprepes root weevil, Diprcpe q
abbreviatus, is a devastating pest of citrus
and other crops, including sweet potato,
sugar cane, corn and several ornamentals. Participants a
It was first documented in the Apopka area Scientific Me
in the I 60's, and has now spread to all ma- meeting featu
jor citrus growing regions in Florida.
This year's meeting included several participants from Texas,
who are now on the alert for a Diaprepes outbreak in their state.
Diaprepes was recentlN identified in a Texas citrus grove, and
researchers fear that the root weevil has spread to other groves.
"Although I believe we are slowing [Diaprepes] in certain ar-
eas, it continues its relentless advance and growers continue to
lose trees on a daily basis," said Garvie Hall, Diaprepes Task
Force Co-Chair and Bartow grove owner.
Harold Browning, CRIC Center Director, told the audience thai
researchers are focusing on ways to reduce the impact of Di-
aprepes. "it's a very serious problem," he acknowledged.
Special recognition was given to Buster Pratt, past Co-Chair
and a founding member of the Diaprepes Task Force. Pratt was
inducted into the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame at an industry lun-
cheon later that day.
The adult insects feed and mate on the leaves of citrus and
other host plants. The eggs hatch and larvae drop to the soil
where they feed on citrus roots, where they can cause extensive
mechanical damage. The wounds caused b,, feeding also renders
the tree vulnerable to Pfhyi'phlihra,: fungal infections, causing a
rapid and severe decline.
Current pest management programs are costly and while they
may help suppress an infestation, they do not eradicate the pest.
Researchers continue to make progress on improving current
pest manaL2ement programs. which include a combination of chemi-
cal treatments, biological control with parasitic nematodes, fungi-
cides for Plnrnphthora control and proper irrigation and fertiliza-
tion to improve tree health.
Much effort has been aimed at understanding the factors that
affect the efficacy of parasitic nematodes in the field. Nematode
species such as Steinernema riobrave, Heterorhabditis indicus
and H. bacteriophora parasitize and kill Diaprepes larvae in the
soil. CR FC researchers Larry Duncan and others have been study-
ing possible relationships between soil texture and nematode ef-
ficac\, as well as other factors that can influence the success of

ferent soil types found in Florida.
CREC researchers Jude Grosser and
Jim Graham search for suitable variet-
ies that are resistant to Diaprepes.
More specifically, they are looking for
rootstocks that can tolerate mechani-
cal damage inflicted by Diaprepes lar-
vae. are resistant to Ph toilphtihora fun-
gal infection and capable of vigorous

They have bred some hybrids that
show promising results in a Diaprepes-
infested field site %\ ith high-pH, calcar-
eous soils, a soil type found on the
Indian River and East coast growing regions.
Additional scientific reports included studies on the biology
of egg laying in Diaprepes and seasonal changes in insect popu-
lations, as researchers work toward developing better nan.ae-
ment strategies for this pest. Researchers also are exploring bet-
ter detection methods for Diaprepes, which is notoriously diffi-
cult to detect, particularly when an infestation is small. Areas of
research include the use of remote sensing to monitor Diaprepes
spread throughout an area and acoustic devices to detect under-
ground noises made by Diaprepes feeding on roots. Results on
testing of insecticides and thiamethaamn a pesticide used on
vegetable crops, were also presented at the meeting.

Council's "box-tax" program as a prime example.
During his directorship, CR EC's education program expanded
to include the addition of several on-site courses and distance
education. The Hunt Brothers endowment for graduate student
support was established.
Other milestones during Dr. Kender's tenure included the
dedication of Ben Hill Griffin, Jr. Citrus Hall and a new %;ng to

MEET ...... THE ROUSEFF LAB
Dr. Russell Rouseff
Original from: Chicago area.
Interesting background info: Earned a scholarship to attend an art institute (Saturday
classes) in Chicago from elementary school through high school. No", one ofhis creative
outlets is designing web pages for his laboratory and courses (www lal.ul.edu rousefT)
Career: Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Wheaton College: master's degree in ana-
lytical chemistry from Southern Illinois. Then followed his major professor to the Univer- __
sity of Georgia. where we earned his Ph.D. Shortly before completing his dissertation. he
was offTrcd a teaching position at Polk Community College in Winter Haven. He subsequently finished his Ph.D. (he still has vivid
memories of him and his wife typing 4 copies ofhis dissertation on a typewriter ith carbon paper). After teaching tor three years, Dr.
RousetTaccepted a position at CREC in 1974- with the Florida Department of Citrus. In 1987, he accepted a Uni\ ersit of Florida faculty
position at CREC.
Dr. Rouseff's leads a research and teaching program the flavor chemistry of citrus, tropical juices, oils and essences and the human
perception of flavor. His lab is equipped with instruments such as gas chromatography-olfactometry, mass spectrometry, electronic
noses and other state-of-the-art equipment to characterize and identify flavor impact compounds.
Much of his recent work has focused on determining the key components that contribute to "good and bad" grapefruit juice flavor.
"We are just now starting to understand the driving factors for grapefruit juice [flavor]", Dr. Rouieff said. Interesting, they have
learned that trace components can have a noticeable impact on grapefruit juice flavor. For example, sulfur compounds contribute to
flavor of grapefruit juice. At minute concentrations, certain sulfur compounds are perceived as warm and fruity. At slielgtl higher
concentrations, Dr. Rouseff explained. these same compounds become offensive to the human nose, smelling "st ink ". "We're tr ing
to find the proper balance. It's not just one or two compounds," said Dr. Rouseff.
Dr. Rouseffis also directing research on the flavor impact ofcarotenoids, a group oforange-yellow plant pigments. Researchers are
discovering that some of the breakdown products of carotenoids can have flavor components. "It's a brand new area," said Dr.
Rouscff His graduate student, Kanajana Mahatianatawee, is currently working on this project.
Dr. Rouseffalso enjoys teaching and training graduates students. He teaches the course, Flavor Chcmistrn and Technolpgy. every
other spring semester. His lab includes Jack Smoot (chemist), Dr. Jianming Lin (postdoc), Dr. Filomena Valim (% isitine sc ienlist Glen

Tools of the Trade: Flavor and Aroma Research
Dr. Rouseff's laboratory is equipped with slate-of-the-art instrumentation for fla or and aroma identification and characterization.
"Flavor has many different aspects," says Dr. Rouseff. when explaining the different instruments used. Below are some of the
equipment used in his research. He works closely with the citrus processing industry to provide information for quality control -
with the ultimate goal of producing quality citrus products for the consumer. Funds for this equipment were provided by the F orida
Department of Citrus, BARD (Joint US-Isreali research fund), commercial grants and the UF/IFAS Dean for Research.

This instrument enables a user to
analyze a sample by GC and
simultaneously provide a human
