A team led by U.S. Geological Survey researchers has investigated the overlap in ʻōhiʻa (Metrosideros polymorhpa) distribution and the environmental range of Ceratocystis lukuohia, one of two fungal pathogens causing the disease known as Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death. The impact of ROD is expected to reach many native plant species beyond ʻōhiʻa , including endangered plant species.
