Fishing for Phytophthora across Western Australia’s waterways
Hüberli, D., Burgess, T. and Hardy, G.E.St.J. (2010) Fishing for Phytophthora across Western Australia’s waterways. In: 5th IUFRO Phytophthora Diseases in Forests and Natural Ecosystems, 7 - 12 March, Auckland and Rotorua, New Zealand.
The outbreak of P. ramorum in California and Europe, where early detection of an infested area is important to the success of containment and eradication efforts, has popularised the stream surveys in native ecosystems. In Australia, it has recently been used to detect Phytophthora spp. in Victoria resulting in several species being isolated (2). Our aim was to catalogue the Phytophthora spp. present in Western Australia’s (WA) waterways using the stream baiting technique.
