Sonoma County encompasses both sea (the wet coastal strip) and sun (the drier, hotter, higher Mayacamas Mountains). The county features a wide variety of vegetation types, from coastal pines, redwoods, and Douglas-fir-tanoak forests to the oak woodlands and grasslands of the interior–and of course this entails a corresponding array of both native and non-native forest pathogens, including Phytophthora ramorum (cause of sudden oak death), P. cinnamomi, Fusarium circinatum (the cause of pine pitch canker), Viscum album (European mistletoe), and many, many more.
