This article provides a brief overview of the status of Phytophthora diseases in Australasia. Phytophthora cinnamomi remains the key species contributing to the decline of many wildland ecosystems throughout Australia. Recent molecular studies indicate that many new species exist in culture collections that need describing and their role as pathogens fully ascertained. An overview of the science, management and communication processes being undertaken to reduce the impact of P. cinnamomi is also covered for each Australian State and for New Zealand. Activities across the region vary considerably and reflect the amount of resources that are being provided, which are often minimal.
