Phytophthora heveae Thompson was isolated from discoloured sapwood and root tissue of unthrifty kauri (Agathis australis Salisb.) trees and from soil from affected and healthy stands. Laboratory tests showed that the fungus is capable of killing kauri seedlings.

Kauri (Agathis australis) under threat from Phytophthora
In 1972, a Phytophthora was associated with dead and dying trees in a forest stand on Great Barrier, an island off the northern New Zealand coast, and is now found more widespread with isolates recovered from the Waitakere Ranges and Trounson Park. Expand
The occurrence ofPhytophthora heveae in mainland China
Phytophthora heveae was isolated from soil in Hainan Island. This is the first report of its occurrence in mainland China. The world literature onP. heveae is also reviewed.

The mitogenome of Phytophthora agathidicida: Evidence for a not so recent arrival of the “kauri killing” Phytophthora in New Zealand
The inferred age and geographic distribution of the sampled mitogenome diversity suggests that this pathogen diversified following arrival in New Zealand several hundred to several thousand years ago, consistent with the emergence of kauri dieback disease being a consequence of recent changes in the relationship between the pathogen, host, and environment.

Genome sequences of six Phytophthora species associated with forests in New Zealand
Genome sequencing has been performed for 12 Phytophthora isolates to enable comparative analyses to identify potential virulence strategies and ultimately facilitate better control strategies. Expand
A Unique Trunk Canker of Avocado in Guatemala Caused by Phytophthora heveae
Cultures from bark samples yielded a homothallic species of Phytophthora that was identified as P. heveae, the first report of this pathogen on avocado, and the first occurrence in Guatemala of this fungus. Expand
Canker and decline diseases caused by soil- and airborne Phytophthora species in forests and woodlands
Insight is provided into the history, distribution, aetiology, symptomatology, dynamics and impact of the most important canker, decline and dieback diseases caused by soil- and airborne Phytophthora species in forests and natural ecosystems of Europe, Australia and the Americas. Expand
A taxonomic revision of Phytophthora Clade 5 including two new species, Phytophthora agathidicida and P. cocois
Two new species in Clade 5 are presented on the basis of genetic and morphological differences and host specificity, and an authentic ex-holotype culture of Phytophthora castaneae is designated and P. heveae is lectotypified and epitypified. Expand


Phytophthora cinnamomi in indigenous plant communities in New Zealand
Summary Phytophthora cinnamomi has been isolated from roots of 25 species of plants found in four indigenous communities in three of which severe chlorosis, dieback and mortality occur. The mostExpand
Improved methods for use in studies on Phytophtohora cinnamomi Rands and other Phytophthora species
Blue lupin seedlings used as a selective bait were more efficient than the apple technique in soil isolation tests for P. cinnamomi and were also found suitable for isolation of several other species of Phytophihora. Expand
Selective Isolation of Species of Phytophthora from Natural Soils on an Improved Antibiotic Medium
Most species of Phytophthora do not exist in soil as mycelia, but chiefly as non-mycelial propagules, and so it became apparent why Phytphthora could not be recovered from soil whenever selective media containing pimaricin at 100 p.p.m. were used. Expand
