Reviews the research done in attempts to identify the vector of the oak wilt fungus (Ceratocystis fagacearum). Although more than 400 insects are known to attack oak trees, it has not yet been demonstrated conclusively that any insect is the direct vector that transmits the pathogen from a diseased tree to a healthy one. Any insect that feeds on both healthy and diseased trees is suspect, but no true evaluation can be made until more is known about the biology of some insect species.
