Learn about Sudden Oak Death

Since Sudden Oak Death (Phytophthora ramorum, also known as Ramorum Blight) was first seen in California back in 1995, the wide host range of this pathogen has had the nursery industry on high alert. Now Oregon State University has put together an online training course aimed at teaching nursery growers about P. ramorum and other disease-causing pathogens in the genus Phytophthora. The course is free and non-credit, but for an optional $100 fee you can take an online exam to receive a Certificate of Mastery. It is offered in three modules, with the third section entirely devoted to P. ramorum. Read more about the course here, or jump right in to the training.
