DescriptionFollowing the recognition that Phytophthora ramorum (the cause of sudden oak death in the U.S.) was present in Europe as well as America, emergency European Community (EC) phytosanitary measures were put in place in September 2002 to prevent spread of P. ramorum, and also to stop introductions of the pathogen from elsewhere. A 3 year European project then started in 2004 to assess the risks posed by P. ramorum to trees and environmentally important habitats in Europe. The project ? ?Risk Analysis of Phytophthora ramorum?, known by the acronym RAPRA, involves eight research organizations in six countries. The aim is to develop a European pest risk analysis (PRA) for American and European populations of P. ramorum. A project objective is to disseminate results through outreach activities, formal presentations and the project website (http://rapra.csl.gov.uk). The website hosts an extensive database which has gathered together all the records of plants infected by P. ramorum in EU member states, as well as information on host susceptibility and differences between American and European populations of the pathogen.
