    Description

    Phytophthora kernoviae (Pk) and Phytophthora ramorum (Pr) are recently introduced pathogens in United Kingdom (U.K.) woodlands. Pk is also an emerging threat to coastal heathland where it infects Vaccinium myrtillus. In infested woodlands, an invasive plant, Rhododendron ponticum, supports sporulation of both pathogens, providing primary inoculum for infection of Fagus sylvatica. R. ponticum has been removed from several infested woodlands; however, the long term efficacy of R. ponticum removal for disease management is unknown. The epidemiology of Pk in infested heathland is not yet understood. The aggressiveness of Pk in U.K. woodlands and heathland elevate the biosecurity concern associated with its potential introduction to North American forests.
