Description: The Forest Service Sudden Oak Death Research Program is aimed at developing wildland treatments and management strategies for this exotic, invasive, quarantine pathogen that is killing millions of oaks in California and Oregon. The pathogen was discovered in 2001 so basic information on biology is needed to serve as the scientific basis for diagnostic, monitoring, inspection, eradication and other federal protocols. This is the only research program in the United States addressing Sudden Oak Death and its impacts in forests. The program is run as a competitive, peer-reviewed, grants program, in 2005, 12 new projects were awarded along with 14 continuing projects. The awards went to researchers at institutions in 3 countries and 8 states. The information supported by these funds is being used in risk assessments conducted by the USDA APHIS, USDA Forest Service, Canada, the UK, and European Union; ornamental nursery and forest diagnostic guides; and national and state training sessions.
