E.F.K's Vision and Legacy

 


In summary, I have itemized on this slide a few generic principles, already discussed, associated with my father’s values, visions, and legacy. These are:
 
  • Prevention rather than treatment
  • Total insect population suppression
  • Area-wide concept
  • Mathematical probability models
  • Sterile insect technique
  • Parasitoid augmentation technology
  • Pilot tests to validate and demonstrate
  • Persistent optimism and tenacity
