  title={Diseases of trees in the Great Plains},
  author={Aaron Bergdahl and A. Hill},
Hosts, distribution, symptoms and signs, disease cycle, and management strategies are described for 84 hardwood and 32 conifer diseases in 56 chapters. Color illustrations are provided to aid in accurate diagnosis. A glossary of technical terms and indexes to hosts and pathogens also are included.

Distribution and persistence of Verticillium dahliae in the xylem of Norway maple and European ash trees
It is observed that V. dahliae can move downward from the point of inoculation into the root collar, which possibly provides a way for infection of new growth rings by circumventing the physical barriers within the stem xylem.

Verticillium wilt caused by Verticillium dahliae in woody plants with emphasis on olive and shade trees
Screening for resistant genotypes that can be included in breeding programs to increase resistance to Verticillium wilt is an important strategy for future disease control and protocols for quick and efficient screening of new planting sites as well as planting material for V. dahliae prior to cultivation are described.
The beginning of the end? Extensive dieback of an open-grown Amur honeysuckle stand in northern Kentucky, USA
Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) is recognized as one of the most important invasive species in the Ohio River Valley and future work is needed to determine how widespread the decline is and if the leaf blight is the causative agent or an opportunistic infection.
The role of mycorrhizal fungi in Eucalyptus gomphocephala (Tuart) health
This is the first study to investigate mycorrhizal status formation in relation to the health status of E. gomphocephala and confirm observations on root colonization, namely there were more ECM fungi associated with seedling roots grown in soil collected from under healthy canopies, and more AM fungi found in seedling Root colonization found in soil collection from under declining canopie.
Honeysuckle leaf blight reduces the growth of infected Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii, Caprifoliaceae) seedlings in a greenhouse experiment1
The hypothesis that leaf blight causes a significant growth decline in Amur honeysuckle is supported, and the patterns seen under greenhouse conditions hold in the field.
Ash decline in Iowa
There have been numerous reports of ash (Fraxinus) decline in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. One known factor that has contributed to the decline of ash is a disease called ash yellows
Canopy spectral reflectance detects oak wilt at the landscape scale using phylogenetic discrimination
This study suggests that coupling phylogenetics, physiology, and canopy spectral reflectance provides an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach that enables detection of forest diseases at large scales even at early disease stages.
Understanding i-Tree
i-Tree is a suite of computer software tools designed to assess and value the urban forest resource, understand forest risk, and develop sustainable forest management plans to improve environmental quality and human health.
Regard nouveau sur la biologie du polypore ponctué : Fomitiporia punctata (P. Karsten) Murrill
L’inventaire réalisé dans 2 sites au Québec montre qu’il est parfois un agent pathogène responsable d’un chancre sur le chêne rouge (Quercus rubra L.) and le frêne Rouge (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marsh.).


Interactions of insects, woodpeckers, and hypoxylon canker on aspen.
The disease history in two aspen plantations and the role of various wounds in the infection process are described.
How to collect field samples and identify the oak wilt fungus in the laboratory.
Oak wilt is a serious disease that infects many species of oak. It is responsible for the death of thousands of oak trees in forests, woodlots, and home landscapes each year. Oak wilt occurs in the
Challenges and Successes in Managing Oak Wilt in the United States.
The significant gains made in the knowledge of the biology and epidemiology of this vascular wilt disease during the past six decades has led to development of various management strategies.
Growing healthy seedlings : identification and management of pests in Northwest forest nurseries
T his book provides an illustrated guide to the identification and management of fungi, insects, and abiotic conditions that cause problems in Northwest bareroot conifer nurseries. A key to nursery
Nematode Parasites and Associates of the Smaller European Elm Bark Beetle, Scolytus multistriatus (Marsham)
Of the 12 genera found in studies of nematodes associated with Scolytus multistriatus (Marsham), only Parasitaphelenchus oldhami Ruhm was parasitic; in this instance as larvae in the insect body cavity.
Phomopsis Blight of Junipers
Phomopsis blight has been a serious problem for more than 75 years in nurseries producing juniper seedlings and grafts, and is widespread in the United States.

Lodgepole pine stem diseases and management of stand density in the British Columbia interior
The incidence of western gall rust, stalactiform blister rust, comandra blister rust and Atropellis canker was measured in young lodgepole pine stands in the Interior of B.C. between 1980 and 1992 and declined from 1985 to 1992, partly because of infected tree mortality, but mostly because of a low rate of new infection.
Insect vectors of the pinewood nematode: a review of the biology and ecology of Monochamus species
Studies conducted in different countries on Monochamus vector species of the pinewood nematode are compared and discussed, and a remarkable similarity among beetle species around the globe for a variety of life-history traits is indicated.
Pine wilt disease
The pinewood nematode (PWN) was initially observed killing exotic pines in Missouri in the late 1970s, but its distribution expanded west into Kansas and Nebraska during the past three decades and is now a potential threat in many regions of the state where extended periods of high early summer temperatures occur.
