疫 dieback is caused by the introduced plant pathogen 樟疫霉
It spreads through the movement of infected water and soil, especially by human activity.
Phytophthora really is a ‘biological bulldozer’. You can be in Banksia woodland thick enough that you get scratched up pushing your way through. But once 疫 has been through, you can play a game of golf."教授贾尔斯耐寒
默多克 中心 疫 科学管理 (CPSM) have developed strategies to limit the spread of 疫
More generally, the CPSM has addressed many aspects of 疫 control and eradication, including reviewing the National Threat Abatement Plan for Dieback, and creating the ‘Review of best practice management for 樟疫霉”, now cited internationally as a guideline to 疫 管理。
教授贾尔斯耐寒, who leads CPSM, says 'the savings to industries across Australia runs into hundreds of millions of dollars, and preserving healthy ecosystems is priceless'.
