This report provides summaries of the majority of past and ongoing Armillaria studies conducted in British Columbia from the mid 1970s to 1995. Pertinent results of each study are summarized, and limitations in documentation are discussed. The format of the summaries emphasizes study design, methodology, and site characteristics, because these factors influence not only site-specific interpretations but also inter-project extrapolation.

Topic areas range from control treatment options to the ecological role of Armillaria in natural forests. Many of the short-term studies provide exciting insight into the complexity of pathogen-host-environment interactions. The more long-term studies will provide much needed information on 5-year and +10-year response to management options. Other projects provide important background information for future planning of operational risk-management trials. Together, the 44 projects provide a solid foundation for developing future complementary and integrated research on Armillaria.
