Susceptibility of three Mediterranean oak species to Diplodia corticola infection


Abstract: The Botryosphaeriaceae represent a cosmopolitan family of economically important fungal pathogens infecting woody plants. In particular, a member of this family namely Diplodia corticola represents a serious threat to oak trees worldwide. In this paper, we present the results of a study about the susceptibility of three Mediterranean oak species to infection of two genetically distinct lineages of D. corticola.
