Event Description

Sudden Oak Death "bioblitzes" let volunteer citizen scientists track the spread of the Sudden Oak Death pathogen, increase understanding of the disease, and help slow its spread. After three dry years, 2014 may be a key year to identifying trees in which the pathogen survives in dry conditions.

Sign up here to attend training for the 2014 "bioblitz" at 1 PM Saturday, May 10, in Room 159 Mulford Hall on the  UC Berkeley campus. After the training, you will search for suspect leaf samples in places you choose, and when you choose, through Sunday evening. Samples should be returned to a dropbox on the UC Berkeley campus by Monday morning.

There also is a 10 AM May 10 training session at the Orinda Public Library, 26 Orinda Way, Orinda. Sign up for that session with William Hudson, wllhh@ymail.

Anyone can survey; youll get all needed materials at the training. But if you have a smart phone, please bring it. You can help with collection by downloading the free App SODMAP mobile.

After laboratory analysis, results will be published on the web on Oct. 1. Results of previous years' surveys can be seen at http://nature.berkeley.edu/garbelotto/english/mappage.php.
