The Alsike area has been studied for its fungus outbreaks, first Ambrosiella and Raffaelea in certain trees, spread by symbiotic host beetles. In 1983, the area's clover (which is a major part of horses' diet) was struck by a fungus epidemic of Olpidium brassicae and Ligniera species, previously not seen in Canada.
