, causal agent of sudden oak death, is an emerging plant pathogen first observed in North America associated with mortality of tanoak () and coast live oak () in coastal forests of California during the mid-1990s. The pathogen is now known to occur in North America and Europe and have a host range of over 40 plant genera. Sudden oak death has become an example of unintended linkages between the horticultural industry and potential impacts on forest ecosystems. This paper examines the biology and ecology of in California and Oregon forests as well discussing research on the pathogen in a broader management context.
