These are laminated root rot, caused by the fungus Phellinus weirii; Armillaria root disease, caused by Armillaria ostoyae; and Annosus root disease, caused by Heterobasidion annosum.

Annosus root disease, caused by Heterobasidion annosum(Fr.) Bref. (=Fomes annosus(Fr.) Karst.), occurs in temperate zones throughout the Northern Hemisphere, and is common on conifers in the western United States. Infected trees suffer root and butt decay, and root mor-tality, resulting in reduced vigor, wind-throw, predisposition to bark File Size: KB.

The Impact and Control of Major Southern Forest Diseases A. Dan Wilson, Theodor D. Leininger, William J. Otrosina, L. David Dwinell, and Nathan M. Schiff 1 AbstractÑA variety of forest health issues, concerns, and events have rapidly changed southern forests and.

Losses in commercial forests can be substantial in some regions, such as in western USA, where Smith () estimated that 18% of tree mortality was attributable to root diseases, with annual. The United States is dominated by a range of old mountains and plateaus—the Appalachians—that runs north and south on the east side of the North American continent and young ranges of lofty mountains—the Rockies, Cascades, and Sierra Nevada—that run north and.

Forest structure is the horizontal and vertical distribution of plant material, including ground vegetation and dead or fallen woody material, shrubs, and understory, midstory, and overstory trees (Bennett, ).Structure also concerns the age distribution of the trees in the forest. Introduction.

Removal of tree stumps and roots (stumping) is a silvicultural treatment to mitigate for Armillaria and Phellinus root diseases. These fungal root diseases have global distribution and are of particular interest in the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC) and the U.S.

Ink disease, caused by Phytophthora species, is one of the most destructive diseases affecting Castanea sativa worldwide. In Europe, typical symptoms were first reported in Portugal in (Crandall et al.Crandall ) and since then it has become widespread across the continent with an increase in incidences during the last decades (Vannini Cited by: Controversy surrounds the operational use of root removal techniques because, although somewhat effective at reducing disease incidence in the regeneration stands (Morrison et al., ), it is very difficult and expensive to remove sufficient root material to eliminate disease-caused by: Full text of "Forest insect and disease conditions in the United States, " See other formats.

Pine pitch canker (PPC), caused by the pathogenic fungus Fusarium circinatum (Nirenberg and O’ Donnell), is a serious threat to pine forests globally. The recent introduction of the pathogen to Southern Europe and its spread in Mediterranean region is alarming considering the immense ecological and economic importance of pines in the region.

The disease presently occurs in widely scattered areas throughout the western, central, and southern United States. In the South, the primary hosts are loblolly, shortleaf, pond, and Virginia pine.

Pines are major components of native forests and plantations in Europe, where they have both economic significance and an important ecological role. Diseases of pines are mainly caused by fungal and oomycete pathogens, and can significantly reduce the survival, vigor, and yield of both individual trees and entire stands or plantations.

Nematodes are aquatic organisms that depend on thin water films to live and move within existing pathways of soil pores of 25– μm diameter. Soil nematodes can be a tool for testing ecological hypotheses and understanding biological mechanisms in soil because of their central role in the soil food web and linkage to ecological processes.

Ecological succession is one of the most tested Cited by: Keywords: Ornamental grasses, Native plants--Care and maintenance, Melica, Festuca, Elymus, Drought-tolerant plants, Calamagrostis, Bromus I am looking for a native, drought-tolerant grass for a small garden plot in Seattle.

Can you suggest a grass that is feet tall and at most 2 feet wide. This disease, caused by Serratia marcesans, a phloem-limited bacterium, is transmitted by squash bugs, Anasa tristi. Symptoms of CYVD include general decline, yellowing, stunting, and collapse of individual vines and necrosis of older leaves attached to the main stem.

Losses can be variable, but the grower had % crop loss. The climate is changing and many Eastern European and Former Soviet Union countries are vulnerable to the consequences.

Many countries are facing warmer temperatures, a changing hydrology and more. Crop losses from pests can be significant and have been estimated at 20 to 30 billion dollars per year in the United States alone (James, ).

When considering the effects of 0, on crop plants or forests, it is important to realize that the pollutant does not occur alone, but rather in conjunction with other stresses that are modifying the. Like all other plants, trees are vulnerable to attack by a multitude of pests and pathogens.

Current control measures for many of these diseases are limited and relatively ineffective. Several methods, including the use of conventional synthetic agro-chemicals, are employed to reduce the impact of pests and diseases.

However, because of mounting concerns about adverse effects on the Author: Mojgan Rabiey, Luke E. Hailey, Shyamali R. Roy, Kristina Grenz, Mahira A. Al-Zadjali, Glyn A.
