Broome and Mitchell (2017)
Ecological impacts of ash dieback and mitigation methods

This Research Note from Forest Research summarises recent research on the ecological value of ash, on tree and shrub species as alternatives to ash, and on the interpretation of this information for woodland management.

Coker et al (2019)
Estimating mortality rates of European ash (Fraxinus excelsior) under the ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) epidemic

The authors quantify the impact of ash dieback on tree mortality across Europe and use this data to develop a long-term predictive model.

Enderle et al (2017)
Temporal development of collar necroses and butt rot in association with ash dieback

By analysis tree ring structures, this study looks at the progression of collar necroses on infected ash trees in south-western Germany.

Forestry Commission (2013)
NFI preliminary estimates of quantities of broadleaved species in British woodlands, with special focus on ash

The National Forest Inventory provides a record of the size and distribution of forests and woodlands in Great Britain. This report is particularly focussed on the quantities of ash in the context of all broadleaved species.

JNCC (2014)
The potential ecological impact of ash dieback

A thorough and detailed report on the impact to British biodiversity of the loss of ash trees due to ash dieback.

Gross et al (2014)
Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus, the causal agent of European ash dieback

A comprehensive review on the current understanding of the causative fungus of ash dieback that highlights knowledge gaps and research needs.

Broome et al (2014)
Ash dieback and loss of biodiversity – Can management make broadleaved woodlands more resilient?

This report evaluates the practical measures that might be taken to maintain biodiversity if significant numbers of ash trees are lost from British woodlands.
