    Description

    Pertinent literature on the biological aspects of annosus root disease is reviewed. Key features of the life cycle of Heterobasidion annosum such as stump infection, stump colonization, host-parasite relations, and interactions of various physical and biological factors are discussed in relation to forest stands in the western United States. This review suggests our knowledge of the pathology of this disease is limited on most affected tree species. Further research on various aspects of the life cycle of this fungus is essential to minimizing losses to this disease.
