Status of Septoria hodgesii as a biocontrol agent for Morella faya in Hawaii

Septoria hodgesii, a potential biological control agent for Morella faya, from Morella cerifera in North Carolina was released at Volcano, Hawaii Island in 1998, but with no noticeable impact by 2000. It has been suggested that acid rain around the Volcano area inhibits spore germination, and that the fungus may be more successful if tested elsewhere.
