National best practice and risk assessment for the management of Phytophthora cinnamomi in natural ecosystems
O'Gara, E., Wilson, B., Howard, K. and Hardy, G.E.St.J. (2005) National best practice and risk assessment for the management of Phytophthora cinnamomi in natural ecosystems. Australasian Plant Conservation, 34 (3). pp. 5-6.
Disease in natural ecosystems of Australia caused by the introduced plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi is listed as a key threatening process under the Commonwealth’s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The Act requires the Commonwealth Government to prepare and implement a threat abatement plan for nationally coordinated action to mitigate the harm caused by P. cinnamomi to Australian species, particularly threatened flora, fauna and ecological communities. The National Threat Abatement Plan for Dieback Caused by the Root-Rot Fungus Phytophthora cinnamomi (Threat Abatement Plan) was released in 2001 (Environment Australia 2001). See page 29 for further details.
