The role of Pythiacious soil-borne micro-organisms in the tuart decline at Yalgorup
Pythiacious soil borne micro-organism, encompassing Phytophthora species, include a diverse group of pathogens that have been identified as contributing and inciting significant forest declines throughout the world, including the south-west of Western Australia and the world. Continuing research indicates that Phytophthora species may have significant, yet unclear, roles in forest declines. Improved methods of molecular species identification indicate a greater diversity of species than once evident from strictly morphological identification, and the ongoing evolution and divergence of new species.
