Bob Tanem In The Garden, September 28, 8:00

Our guest this morning was Professor Matteo Garbelotto, our local authoritative expert on Sudden Oak Death. "Professor Matteo" is with Bob's alma mater, University of California at Berkeley; on the web site there, listeners can find interactive maps of the Bay Area showing where the disease is spreading, and can register for classes to learn how to identify and combat this deadly disease.

Sudden Oak Death is caused by a Phytophthora ramorum, that is to say, a microscopic algae-like life form that invades and chokes native oak trees, causing sudden death.
