Abstract

In July 2010, scientists and community became aware of alarming changes to tree crown health within pockets of marri (Corymbia calophylla) and jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata)-dominated forest. Severe shoot and foliage mortality was reported throughout large porti ons of the north-western jarrah forest, with marri suffering foliage dieback on the crown periphery and jarrah leaves first turning distinctly purple in colour prior to dying and shedding.
