Need to attack forest disease

Parker, C.A. (1977) Need to attack forest disease. The West Australian, 31 January 1977. [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Letters to the editor feature contribution from Professor C.A. Parker, soil microbiologist, department of soil science, University of Western Australia.
Professor Parker discuss an article on dieback in Cape le Grand national park which raises matters he believes the public should know about consequences of the present restrictions on the growth of the public service.
Serious environmental and economic consequences are evident and the total destruction of the jarrah forest is a real possibility.
The State Forests Department, which is responsible for our forests has no professional plant pathologist on its staff to study the fungus which causes dieback.
The CSIRO, funded by the Australian Government, employs three professional plant pathologists and several assistants to work on the problem in Western Australia.
