Prevention and management of Phytopthora spp. in Mediterranean oaks

This meeting is a new Science to Practice that will be dedicated to the knowledge and prevention of the spread of pathogens related to the genus Phytopthora in Mediterranean oak forests, with particular reference to the cork oaks and holm oaks of Sardinia.

The seminar, organised by our partner FoReSTAS, is mainly addressed to operators in the forestry and nursery sector.

Objectives to achieve in this Science to Practice:

A. Participants:

  • To know the essential ecological characteristics of the pathogens of the genus Phytopthora widespread in the Mediterranean oak forests;
  • To know the problems related to the spread of the pathogen and its effects on cork oaks;
  • To know the main techniques of recognition and prevention in the field and in the nursery;
  • Become familiar with the INCREDIBLE project network and its objectives.

B. Relevant topics of the Cork iNet addressed:

  • What are the innovative techniques for the management of Phytopthora spp. in cork and nursery?
  • What effects will climate change have on the spread of the phenomena of quercino deterioration?
  • What are the factors limiting effective management of the phytosanitary problem?

INCREDIBLE Project events

Oristano (Sardinia, Italy)


The INCREDIBLE project aims to show how Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) can play an important role in supporting sustainable forest management and rural development, by creating networks to share and exchange knowledge and expertise. ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) promotes cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation to highlight the value and potential of NWFPs in the region.


Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) project receives funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement Nº 774632
