Concluding Remarks


Part I of this book gives an overview of the history of pine wilt disease in Japan, China, Korea, and North American and Europe. The first author, K. Futai, gives the history of pine wilt disease in Japan starting early in the twentieth century. As well he describes the spread of the disease in Japan and some factors that may have influenced the spread. Various factors such as the role of asymptomatic carriers, which to date have been largely unstudied, may be very important in the persistence and spread of pine wilt disease.
