ogy, and control of internal parasites in livestock. DiPietro's research includes clinical evaluations to measure anthelmintic efficacy of pyrantel salts, benzimidazoles, and avermectins in livestock animals. He has extensive background in research and use of ivermectins in horses, including ecological implications. DiPietro received his DVM and MS in veterinary parasitology from the University of Illinois.
ROBERT M. GOODMAN is a member of the Department of Plant Pathology, the interdepartmental program in Plant Genetics and Plant Breeding, the Institute for Environmental Studies, the graduate program in cellular and molecular biology, and the Biotechnology Training Program at the University of Wisconsin. His laboratory works on the molecular regulation of plant defense genes and the role of plant genotype in associations with noninvasive, beneficial microorganisms. Goodman is well known for his groundbreaking research at the University of Illinois, where he was the first to describe the molecular biology of a group of single-stranded DNA plant viruses, now called geminiviruses. Formerly, he was executive vice president for research and development at Calgene, Inc. Goodman has served on the National Research Council's Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources and numerous study committees. He received his PhD from Cornell University.
FRED GOULD is professor of entomology at North Carolina State University. Gould has researched ecological genetics of pest adaptation to chemical, biological, and cultural control tactics. His major emphasis in recent years has been focused on developing methods for delaying pest adaptation to transgenic crops that produce insecticidal proteins derived from Bacillus thuringiensis. Gould was an author of the National Research Council report Ecologically Based Pest Management (1996) and participated in the workshop on “Pesticide Resistance: Strategies and Tactics for Management” (1986). He received his PhD in ecology and evolution at State University of New York at Stony Brook.
JEFFREY GUNSOLUS is professor of research and extension at the University of Minnesota. He performs and publishes research on weed crop interactions, including evaluations of decision-making processes for weed management in corn and soybeans. In his extension role, Gunsolus provides pest-management expertise to growers. His extension bulletins include topics on herbicide mode of action, herbicide-resistant weeds, and chemical and cultural weed control of field crops. In a previous position, Gunsolus was an extension associate at Iowa State University. He received his PhD at North Carolina State University.
