Abstract

The oak wilt fungus (C. fagacearum) spreads both through root grafts to adjacent trees and via insects over longer distances. Effective control of the disease requires a better understanding of the spatial and temporal components of both types of spread. Towards that end, color infrared aerial photography covering a ten-year interval of time was interpreted and then analyzed using a GIS for purposes of describing spread rates and areas affected. -from Authors
