Decision-making guidance for managing Phytophthora infections in Vaccinium myrtillus populations 2016

Terrestrial JNCC Publications 0963-8091 Guidance Heathland JNCC report series Plants Species Woodland 578


The framework in this report sets out guidance to help in decision making on whether to manage Phytophthora infections in Vaccinium myrtillus. However, every site infected by Phytophthora will have different circumstances. Consequently, there may be exceptions where the most appropriate course of action varies from the framework recommendations. The framework should, at the very least, encourage consideration of all the criteria that should be taken into account before a course of action is chosen. Within this document, factors underlying the framework which should guide decision-making are discussed in detail.
