    Description

    This review provides a brief biological outline of some species in the genus Fusarium and how these can be implicated as seedborne organisms leading to conifer seed and seedling losses in British Columbia. Fusarium spp. are implicated with pre- and post-emergence damping-off, seedling wilt, late damping-off, root rot, and seedling mortality after outplanting. Current understanding of Fusarium spp., with regard to cone and seed pest management in British Columbia, is outlined. Shortfalls that still exist and how these might be addressed with the development of a vision for better understanding this group of fungi and a mission statement of how this might be achieved are presented.
