Abstract

Eucalyptus marginata is the dominant tree of a forest community in south-western Australia. It is susceptible to infection by Phytophthora cinnamomi and is usually rare on long-infested sites. Ex situ stem inoculation was used to compare the susceptibility of E. marginata plants in long-infested sites and adjoining uninfested sites. Plants were found to be less susceptible on some long-infested sites but other factors may also be important in regulating regeneration and survival of E. marginata.
