Description: The National Ornamentals Research Site at Dominican University of California (NORS-DUC) was founded in the year 2009 by a Farm Bill grant to study Phytophthora ramorum in a sophisticated research nursery that reflects an authentic commercial nursery setting (www.dominican.edu/norsduc). NORS-DUC goals are to develop practical solutions for containment, remediation, and eradication of quarantine pathogens in nurseries and to reduce the risk of long-range spread of pests through infested nursery stock shipments. Research at NORS-DUC is conducted by a team of permanent staff as well as by P. ramorum experts from other institutions who can apply for grants to work at NORS-DUC. The research site offers a unique opportunity to study different aspects of ornamental diseases caused by P. ramorum and other quarantine organisms that cannot easily be accomplished using experiments in a laboratory.
