Plant Diseases in Ecosystems:

threats and impacts in south-western Australia


A symposium jointly convened by

The Royal Society of Western Australia

and

The Ecological Society of Australia

on 16 April 1994

 

Copies of the Symposium Proceedings available for sale.

Presentations were made on contemporary research on the ecological and social impact of plant diseases in natural ecosystems of south-western Western Australia, including Phytophthora, Armillaria, canker and other diseases. Invited speakers were scientists with research experience in disease impact on plant and animal life, landscape, resource industries, recreation and other social values, and in disease control measures and disease resistance. Papers presented by invited speakers have been refereed and published in 90 pages as Vol 77 (4) of the Journal of the Royal Society of Western Australia.
