            <span></span>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.
            <p>
              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.</p>
            <p>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).</p>
            <p>There is no charge, however registration is required.
