To enable informed choice of Australian species for gardens and amenity areas in soils infested with Phytopthora cinnamomi, a summary was made of all reports of native species resistant or susceptible to the pathogen. Species were mostly those native to Western Australia. A brochure was produced that lists the resistant species while a list of the susceptible species is availed online. The degree of confidence for the designation of resistance or susceptibility is indicated. This depends on whether species have been subjected to inoculation with the pathogen under controlled glass house conditions, inoculation in the field or whether resistance or susceptibility is assumer from the survival or death of the species in areas where the pathogen is active.
