Research with Mycosphaerella spp. on eucalypts has been historically and strongly focused towards taxonomical species descriptions, extension of host, and geographical range. To date there is insufficient information to develop management prescriptions that can be applied operationally.

The research concept we have adopted is an integration of empirical studies (detection, impact, epidemiology, and physiology) and designed experiments that provide a knowledge base from which models can be developed and validated. Our empirical studies and designed experiments form a core response to current industry priorities in Australia.
