Abstract

This Index was compiled from over 60 years of Canadian Forest Service records and collections, augmented with almost 400 literature records and data provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Its purpose is to collate records of fungi, plant pathogens, and plant-associated microorganisms occurring on native plants and other forest substrates in British Columbia. The Index holds records of 3506 organisms on 1703 different plant hosts and other substrates. Of these records, 4742 are verified by herbarium specimens curated at the Pacific Forestry Centre. A separate, incomplete list of organisms associated with some agricultural crops and introduced ornamental plants (included in an earlier host-fungus index but not updated) is also appended.
