(1977) This is why. The Darling, 5 January 1977. p. 1 [Publication] [Special Collections]


This article discusses the jarrah dieback, a disease caused by the fungus, Phytophthora cinnamomi, which is a grave threat to the forest and woodland communities in the south-west of Western Australia.
Many Hills holiday families have found forest roads closed to them and large areas of beautiful bushland out of bounds.
To overcome the dieback problem it has become necessary to quarantine apparently healthy areas from sources of infection, so as to allow sufficient time for visible symptoms to develop.
