Model ecosystem for simulated release of viruses

A contained model ecosystem has been developed in which the atmospheric conditions (wind, rain and sunlight) in a 0.6 x 1.2 m part of a cultivated field can be imitated. The ecosystem was used for simulated field release of insect viruses to investigate their behaviour in the environment.
