DescriptionTo combat sudden oak death (SOD), scientists needed to understand its primary host – tanoak, Notholithocarpus densiflorus (Hook. & Arn.) Manos, Cannon & S. H. Oh (Fagaceae), so research was initiated on its distribution, utilization and natural history. This Madrono Special Issue presents much of what we have learned, over the past 10 years, about this endemic, broadleaf tree, common throughout coastal California and southwest Oregon. By assembling this work, we aim to synthesize new information about this important SOD host; apply the concepts and findings to conservation and management; and share our appreciation for tanoak.
