Epidemiology and Control of Sudden Oak Death

2004 | John H. Andrews, University of Wisconsin
The Sudden Oak Death pathogen, Phtophthora ramorum, is harbored in the leaves of other woody plants associated with oaks, and moves by wind and rain to the oak hosts. Study of the pathogen and its interaction with other members of the leaf surface microbial community on both symptomatic and asymptomatic hosts may provide insight on methods to control this disease.
