Thanks Betty for the intro and the info!
Suzanne are there visual differences in bay leaf lesions between ramorum and pseudosyringae?
yes I would love to know what the differences are and more broadly, can experts put together a table of visual symptoms of different Phytophthoras?
difficult to see entire slide
the ppt seems cut off and we're missing some of the slide
The screen image is cut off (on the right side). Anyone else?
Yes, the screen seems cut off
in my opinion, there is no way to distinguish P. ramorum and P. pseudosyringae on bbay layurel
lots of experience
P. nemorosa as well is indistinguishable
I think characterizing P. cactorum as non-native is not backed up by the evidence (just a minor point)
will all these presentations be posted to a website?
that doesn't mean it can't be invasive!
Thank you so much!
great presentation, Chris
Will CDFA coordinate with Cal Fish and Wildlife to get perspectives of restoration project managers?
Is anyone else having trouble hearing? Not sure if it is just my internet.
Janell you're sounding intermittently digital/broken--don't know if that's just me
Janell is breaking up for me pretty bad. Is it just me?
It's breaking up for me too.
I am hearing that too
Steven I would love to collaborate with Cal Fish and Wildlife (as well as other entities) to ensure this program remains applicable and valuable to the public.
mostly OK but sometimes breaking up
Sorry for the audio issues. It seems to be spotty for Janell

Hi Janell - where along guadalupe was Phytophthora detected? near to downtown SJ?
Can Janell provide the contract language as it involves phy?
what nursery do you use- does valley water have its own? Or maybe you have several? So curious!
we definitely detected multiple species of Phytophthora in downtown SJ. You can find the locations linked from the sequences in GenBank
Does this mesh/combine with pre-planting testing at the potential mitigation site?
Thanks for this hopeful summary of info Janell! Good to know all our hard work is paying off:)
Now we are
how much faster do you think the manifold would get wood chips to temperature?
Great presentations, thank you!
Thanks Vernon! At the Golden Gate National Park Nurseries, we have been experimenting with a steam manifold set inside a trailer to steam potting soil so that it is mobile. This is a bottom up manifold that is still in development to get the steaming time down, but we're on the right track. My team and I can share info with those who might be interested.
How much do you charge for steaming services? Are there ways to sign up?
An identified problem with bottome maniforlds is blow out - channeling of steam along more porous channels in the media pile.
all the presentations were excellent. thanks!
Thank you so much everyone!
Thank you!! We appreciate everyone's time.
For Steam services contact Vernon.firstname.lastname@example.org
At the nursery site with P.ramorum, did you say how deep in the soil you measured the temperature?
I have a question for Kristina Weber: will the NORCAL AIR program return to evaluating nurseries with COVID-19? what can nursery managers expect moving forward? thank you, all these presentations were awesome
Which four nurseries?
Is there any centralized place/person/organization that is collecting BMP-related educational materials for training purposes? Target audience nursery staff and volunteers. Same question re: nursery signage. FANTASTIC presentations, thank you!
sweet thank you
Has anyone found a good source to purchase Rubbing Alcohol? Is there a substitute to use?
For Chris Lee, did you see any forest stand-level effects of Phytophthora infestation that would significantly degrade northern spotted owl habitat? Would Phytophthora-infected forests be more susceptible to large wildfires that also threaten northern spotted owl?
Thank you! I will contact you Janice!
Phytosphere Research site has a lot of detailed info such as instructions for the leachate baiting technique.
we have a source that we id's - -ethanol isopropanol; blend
Fire - disease : https://linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S037811271500153X
We recently obtained 4 gal of ethanol 92%/isopropanol 8% blend from this site: https://e-nrg.com/us/en/bioethanol/ . They also sell in larger bulk sizes. It's pricier than isopropanol at the old standard rate, but is a viable alternative in the short term until the supply comes back to normal. Since this is a 100% alcohol product, we dilute it to 70% by adding distilled water, so 4 gal will yield 5.7 gal of 70% alcohol. When diluted, it priced out to about $17.50/gal + tax.
this is the paper Chris is currently talking about

amazon still has some alcohol or check your local hydroponic store they seem to have alcohol still too
I found Iso alcohol at John's Dairy supply in Petaluma and at Biologic Crop Solutions last week.
Thanks, Janice and Bonnie!
