Scientific Summary 127 in IUFRO News Vol. 43, Issue 12, mid-December 2014
The 7th meeting of the IUFRO Working Party 7.02.09 Phytophthora in Forests and Natural Ecosystems took place in Esquel, Patagonia, Argentina, from 10-14 November 2014.
Discussions revealed that that number of described species continued to increase as new ecosystems are explored for Phytophthora, and as global plant trade continues to introduce previously unknown and innocuous pathogens to new habitats where they are destructive. Alarming new reports were presented of threats to rare Andean conifers, heritage juniper woodlands in Britain, iconic kauri trees in New Zealand, and plantations of exotic conifers on several continents.
