Assessing the risk of rapid ōhi’a death to New Zealand and the South Pacific (New)

Rapid ‘ōhi’a death has caused widespread death of ‘ōhi’a lehua in Hawaii. Should it establish in Aotearoa New Zealand it has the potential to impact native species such as pōhutukawa and rātā, and exotic plants. This study will evaluate risk, likely Pacific pathways, resistance, and potential vectors.
