Benjamin S. Ramage, Alison B. Forrestel, Max A. Moritz and Kevin L. O'Hara Sudden oak death disease progression across two forest types and spatial scales Journal of Vegetation Science 23
Disease progression differed with forest type, but was unaffected by other pre-existing environmental variables. Tanoak mortality rates were higher in areas with greater prior mortality (at two different spatial scales), suggesting predictable expansion of mortality foci following stochastic infections. Annual mortality rates ranged from 3.2% to 26.2% depending upon forest type and stage of disease progression.
