Abstract

Phytophthora cinnamomi is a soil-borne water mould (Class Oomycetes) that is listed by the IUCN Species Survival Commission as one of the world's 100 most devastating invading species. Consequences of Phytophthora infestation include loss of susceptible plant species, reduction in primary productivity and biomass and changes to habitat structure. These changes in floristic communities and vegetation structure are likely to have consequences for fauna.
