Determination of suitable climate space for Armillaria ostoyae in the Oregon East Cascades


Hanna, John W.; Kim, Mee-Sook; Klopfenstein, Ned B.; Smith, Aaron L.; Maffei, Helen M. 2008. Determination of suitable climate space for Armillaria ostoyae in the Oregon East Cascades. In: McWilliams, Michael; Palacios, Patsy, comps. Proceedings of the 55th Annual Western International Forest Disease Work Conference; 2007 October 15-19; Sedona, AZ. Salem, OR: Oregon Department of Forestry. p. 92.

A collaborative project to determine the distribution of Armillaria ostoyae on the eastern slopes of the Oregon Cascades was started in 2007. The methods and accomplishments of the 2007 field-collection stage of the project are highlighted in this presentation. The next phase of the project will identify Armillaria isolates to species using molecular methods. Sites positive for Armillaria ostoyae will be associated with climate data to determine the potential distribution (and disease activity) of Armillaria ostoyae within the region. Data from this region can then be added to a global Armillaria ostoyae dataset that will help develop climate models to predict the future changes in Armillaria ostoyae under various climate change scenarios.
