  Sudden Oak Death webinar sponsored by UC Berkeley

Posted:   12/04/2012 10:59:14 AM PST

UC Berkeley Forest Pathology Lab will hold a Sudden Oak Death webinar 
from 11 a.m. to noon on Sunday [correction:  Tuesday], Dec. 11. The most 
important aspects of the epidemiology of Sudden Oak Death and how to use 
the knowledge recently acquired on the biology of the SOD pathogen to 
maximize the efficacy of preventive measures to control the disease will 
be discussed.

Timing of landscaping and tree care activities, sanitation strategies, 
and chemical treatments are all discussed and evaluated. Because SOD is 
caused by an exotic invasive organism, generic approaches that ensure 
trees are healthy are not sufficient to manage the disease. Finally, the 
webinar will discuss how environmental, habitat, and host genetic 
components may affect the course of the disease and how land managers 
and property owners can use the disease distribution maps to assess the 
risk of oak infection.

The speaker will be Dr. Matteo Garbelotto, UCCE specialist in Forest 
Pathology and Mycology, UC Berkeley. Dr. Garbelotto has conducted much 
of the research on SOD treatments and will share his findings. For the 
text of his study on SOD treatments, see: Arboriculture and Urban 
Forestry, Vol. 33, No. 5 (2007).

There is no charge, however registration is required. Sign up at the 
following link: http://ucanr.edu/ucbresearch/.

Links for the webinar and login instructions will be provided after
