Notes: Proceedings of the third international symposium on kiwifruit, Thessaloniki, Greece, 19-22 September 1995 edited by Tomkins, A. R.; Allison, P. A.; Wilson, D. J.; Thomson, C. Proceedings of the third international symposium on kiwifruit, Thessaloniki, Greece, 19-22 September 1995. A three-dimensional imaging technology (Polhemus FasTrakTM) was used during 1993 in New Zealand to map the spatial distribution of insect pests in 4 unsprayed kiwifruit vines (cv. Hayward). The position of all leaves was determined and microscopically examined, and insect damage and infestation were recorded. Armored scale insects (mainly Hemiberlesia rapax) were found on leaves throughout the vine canopy, but their density was higher closer to the permanent woody parts of vines.
