Basidiocarp Development in Inonotus obliquus and its Inhibition by Stem Treatments
Dead standing and felled yellow birch trees (Betula alleghaniensis Britt.) bearing sterile conks developed basidiocarps of Inonotus obliquus (Pers. ex Fr.) Pilát regardless of stem treatments: felled, felled and bucked into bolts, felled and bark stripped, deep girdled, and poisoned. The greatest number of basidiocarps appeared on stems that were felled and stripped or felled and bucked, and the least developed on stems merely felled or poisoned. No fruiting developed on stems 43 cm dbh or larger regardless of treatment. The basidiocarps developed within a 7- to 12-year period. The decay zone of 1. obliquus moved to within 0.3-2.5 cm of the outer sapwood prior to pressure ridge formation and subsequent basidiocarp development. Basidiocarps developed in close proximity to sterile conks. A close structural similarity exists between hyphal form and arrangement in the pressure ridges and sterile conks. Forest Sci. 22:431-437.
