Our research includes investigations on the biology, ecology, epidemiology, and management of diseases on tree crops grown in California. Specifically, our research focuses on the epidemiology and management of foliar diseases caused by fungal and bacterial tree pathogens. Research includes ultra-structure of host-pathogen relationships, biology of wood decay fungi, biological and molecular techniques for the detection and identification of fungi, and development of innovative management practices for pre- and postharvest disease control of fruit crops. We have developed exciting, new strategies for management of pre- and postharvest diseases of tree fruit using reduced risk fungicides and disease forecasting programs in California.
