This presentation was prepared for the Living Ash Project Chalara Ash Dieback Workshop at Lawshall, Suffolk on 18 June 2014.
The talk aims to provide an overview of the history and biology of Chalara ash dieback in Britain, and focuses on the lifecycle, signs and symptoms of infection. Additional information is provided regarding current research programmes on ash dieback disease, the genetics of ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and arrangements for reporting suspected cases of infection. The presentation includes many photographs taken in the field and supplied with acknowledgement by colleagues.
