McDougall, K.L., Hardy, G.E.St.J. and Hobbs, R.J. (1997) The distribution of Phytophthora cinnamoni on presumed dieback sites in the northern jarrah forest of Western Australia. In: 11th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society, 29 September - 2 October, Perth, Western Australia.
The longevity of Phytophthora cinnamomi on affected sites in the northern jarrah forest is not known. The pathogen may disappear rapidly following the death of infected hosts. However, it is thought to persist on affected sites, perhaps in tolerant host tissue.
P. cinnamomi has been in the jarrah forest for at least 70 years. In this paper, the results of a survey to determine the distribution of P. cinnamomi on dieback sites affected more than 40 years ago are presented.
