Description: The Pacific Southwest Research Station (PSW), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service initiated the Sudden Oak Death Research (SOD) Program in late 2000. The program was prompted by late fiscal year funding dedicated directly to begin research on this newly discovered disease. The history of discovery of Phytophthora ramorum, the causative agent of SOD, is now well known and will not be repeated here. During the initial start-up of the SOD Research Program, funding came from a variety of sources. Over the course of fiscal years (FY) 2001 and 2002, research funding was received from the USDA Commodity Credit Corporation, USDA Forest Service Research and Development and through a supplemental appropriation from the United States Congress. Starting in FY 2003 the SOD Research Program was funded through the regular appropriation process and was included in the PSW budget. In addition, during FY's 2002 and 2003 the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection provided funds to be used for funding certain research projects administered by the SOD Research Program.
