The current situation with Phytophthora ramorum in England and Wales.

Abstract

Since the first finding of Phytophthora ramorum in England in April 2002, an intensive campaign, supported by the European Community (EC) and national legislation, has been conducted to locate and eradicate all interceptions and outbreaks of P. ramorum. A summary of the findings made during these surveys is presented, along with an initial analysis of progress towards eradication.
