This video is part 4 of a series of 4 videos that illustrate and describe symptoms of sudden oak death in northern California. Sudden oak death is a lethal disease that affects several species of oaks and tanoak. Parts 1 through 3 describe different disease outcomes that occur in coast live oak, Quercus agrifolia. Part 4 describes disease symptoms and outcomes in tanoak, Notholithocarpus (=Lithocarpus) densiflorus. These videos were originally prepared for the e-conference "Visualizing Sudden Oak Death", February 10 - February 21, 2014, sponsored by the California Oak Mortality Task Force (http://suddenoakdeath.org). The field research that formed the basis for these videos was conducted by Elizabeth Bernhardt and Tedmund Swiecki of Phytosphere Research (http://Phytosphere.com) between 2000 and 2014. Support for this research was provided by United States Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, State and Private Forestry and Pacific Southwest Research Station, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission; and the Kashia Band of Pomo Indians of Stewarts Point Rancheria. Elizabeth Bernhardt and Tedmund Swiecki of Phytosphere Research (http://Phytosphere.com) took all of the photographs, developed the graphics and images, and produced the video.

Background music is Serse (Xerxes) HWV 40: I Largo, "Ombra mai fu" by Georg Friedrich Handel, performed by the New Classical Consortium & Hanz Friedman. This is an instrumental version of an aria, that translates as follows: "Never was shade of any plant dearer and more lovely, or more sweet."
