The growth of Stereum sanguinolentum extended over a transectional area of 400 cm² per infection 22 months after inoculation into balsam fir; Fomes pini averaged only 20 cm². In black spruce, S. sanguinolentum averaged 260 cm² per infection while F. pini averaged 60. In black spruce plots both fungi grew faster in the fastest growing trees. The isolate of S. sanguinolentum from balsam fir grew nearly three times faster in balsam fir than two isolates of the fungus from white spruce. Forest Sci. 16: 160-164.
