Although just one in a line of recent disease arrivals in Britain, Chalara fraxinea, the fungus that causes ash dieback, gained massive media and public interest. This talk examines what the disease means for ash trees in Britain, what research is going on in response, and whether resistance or resilience is the key for our trees.

This talk is part of the Botanic Gardens Science Lecture Series.
