Abstract

Jarrah trees surviving on jarrah dieback sites or seedlings surviving inoculation with Phytophthora cinnamomi under glasshouse conditions were propagated using tissue culture techniques. Clones and seedlings of jarrah were inoculated with zoospores in vitro and under glasshouse conditions. When inoculated in vitro individual clones showed a consistent response, between trials, with regard to time to infection. After inoculation in the glasshouse all seedlings became infected and had reduced growth, but the level of infection of the root system and the reduction in the growth of the plants varied between clones.
