His responsibilities there as a Technical Assistance Officer were to investigate the biology and control of major diseases of cacao and to train fellow scientists in the Plant Pathology Section. His time in Ecuador was significant as it introduced him to the frosty pod and witches’ broom diseases on which he has made major contributions over the last four decades (Fig. 1). While at INIAP, he made fundamental advances in understanding the causal agents of these devastating diseases. In addition to a comprehensive monograph on frosty pod (Evans 1981), he published, with coauthors from the Netherlands and USA, the first evidence that the frosty pod agent (known at the time as Monilia roreri) was a basidiomycete (Evans et al.
