Germination of Basidiospores of Fomes pini on Pine Wood Extract Media
Abstract:Weevil-killed leaders and dead lateral branches of Pinus strobus L. were compared as infection courts for Fomes pini. Eighty percent germination of basidiospores occurred on media containing cold water extracts of xylem from bases of weeviled leaders dead 1 to 20 years and lateral branches dead 10 or more years. Germination on similar media containing extracts from bases of lateral branches dead 1 year was 40 percent and on those dead 5 years was 0 to 2 percent. The pH of extracts from both weeviled leaders and bases of lateral branches was within a range favorable for germination.
