Phytophthora ramorum has caused extensive mortality to tanoak and several oak species in coastal California. This pathogen has infected at least 72 plant species under natural conditions and 32 additional species in the laboratory. Many infected hosts have been distributed across the United States by the horticultural industry. We developed a simulation model using CLIMEX software to evaluate the suitability of the climate in the United States for establishment of P. ramorum. CLIMEX was driven… Expand

Assessing the climatic potential for epizootics of the gypsy moth fungal pathogen Entomophaga maimaiga in the North Central United States
TLDR
Long-term annual climatic patterns across much of the eastern United States were 60%–80% similar to the conditions associated with epizootics, and the overall index of climatic similarity, CLIMEX, showed that E. maimaiga will be as effective in other regions that experience different weather conditions is not yet known.

Susceptibility to Phytophthora ramorum and Inoculum Production Potential of Some Common Eastern Forest Understory Plant Species.
TLDR
The results indicate that many common understory species in Eastern U.S. forests are susceptible to P. ramorum and capable of providing ample sources of inoculum for forest epidemics should the pathogen be introduced and should temperature and moisture conditions exist that are conducive to disease development. Expand
Phytophthora ramorum: Susceptibility of Australian plants, potential geographic range and science into policy and management
TLDR
A climate-based model of the potential geographic range of the pathogen and the effectiveness of integration of scientific knowledge between European and North American policy and management responses to P. ramorum indicated that European genotypes may be constrained to a greater degree by higher temperatures than North American genotypes. Expand
Combining Inferential and Deductive Approaches to Estimate the Potential Geographical Range of the Invasive Plant Pathogen, Phytophthora ramorum
TLDR
Phytophthora ramorum appears to be climatically suited to large areas of Africa, Australasia and South America, where it could cause biodiversity and economic losses in plant industries and natural ecosystems with susceptible hosts if introduced. Expand
Predicting Potential Global Distributions of Two Miscanthus Grasses: Implications for Horticulture, Biofuel Production, and Biological Invasions
TLDR
Two species of Asian grass that were originally introduced to North America as ornamental plants have since escaped cultivation and the models indicate that the species have been introduced to most of the potential global climatically suitable areas in the northern but not the southern hemisphere. Expand
Role of abiotic factors in Nothofagus pumilio forest mortality: The sensitivity of ecotones
Abstract The world's forests are being affected by a changing climate. Recently, patches of dead trees have been found in forests of the Patagonian endemic species Nothofagus pumilio, which could notExpand
Susceptibility of Some Eastern Forest Species to Phytophthora ramorum.
We tested some common Eastern forest species for their reaction to stem and leaf inoculation with Phytophthora ramorum, the pathogen that causes sudden oak death. Stem lesions were produced onExpand
Environmental Factors Driving the Recovery of Bay Laurels from Phytophthora ramorum Infections: An Application of Numerical Ecology to Citizen Science
TLDR
It is suggested that aridity might be a key driver boosting the recovery of bay laurel from P. ramorum infections, and the association between recovery and climatic, topographic, and ecological factors was assessed through a numerical ecology approach. Expand
Black Sigatoka in bananas: Ecoclimatic suitability and disease pressure assessments
TLDR
By explicitly considering the role of irrigation, this work has been able to identify how strategic irrigation could be used to support banana production in areas that are at low risk from P. fijiensis. Expand
A glimpse at future forests: predicting the effects of Phytophthora ramorum on oak forests of southern Appalachia
TLDR
The nature and extent of pathogen invasion of Phytophthora ramorum is evaluated using vegetation assessments coupled with growth simulations and projected woody vegetation growth 50 years into the future with and without the effects of SOD. Expand

Susceptibility of Selected Ericaceous Ornamental Host Species to Phytophthora ramorum.
TLDR
The results indicate that many ornamental hosts grown in the United States are susceptible to P. ramorum under artificial inoculation conditions, and inoculum density studies with two susceptible host species showed that P. Ramorum is capable of producing disease symptoms over sporangium concentrations. Expand

Ecoclimatic assessment of potential establishment of exotic pests.
TLDR
The use of CLIMEX to assist with the assessment of potential establishment and spread of two exotic pests, Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), and Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), in New Zealand is demonstrated. Expand
The Potential Geographic Range of Pyrenophora semeniperda.
TLDR
An analysis was undertaken to estimate the potential global distribution of this species, based on climatic suitability, and the CLIMEX model suggests that P. semeniperda could potentially extend its range throughout Europe and temperate regions of Asia, Africa, and South America. Expand

TLDR
By identifying areas at risk of invasion, and vulnerabilities of control strategies, this analysis demonstrates the utility of climate models for providing information suitable to help formulate large-scale, long-term strategic plans for controlling biotic invasions. Expand
Assessment of the Potential Year-Round Establishment of Soybean Rust Throughout the World.
TLDR
The results suggest that the new soybean rust invasions in Africa and South America occurred in the areas where the fungus might persist year-round, including northern South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico, southern Texas, and Florida. Expand
Phytophthora ramorum and Sudden Oak Death in California: I. Host Relationships 1
TLDR
A new canker disease of Lithocarpus densiflorus, Quercus agrifolia, Q. kellogii, and Q. shrevei in California is shown to be caused by Phytophthora ramorum, a recently described species that was previously known only from Germany and The Netherlands on Rhododendron and Viburnum. Expand

Sudden oak death, caused by the recently described pathogen Phytophthora ramorum, is an emerging forest disease that has reached epidemic levels in coastal forests of central California. We present aExpand
European oak declines and global warming: a theoretical assessment with special reference to the activity of Phytophthora cinnamomi
TLDR
Under conditions of global warming the survival and degree of root disease caused by this fungus seems likely to be enhanced, while the host range of the organism might also be increased, and with a mean increase in temperatures the fungus might considerably increase its disease activity in its existing locations, and to some extent spread northwards and eastwards.
