Fungal trunk pathogens associated with wood decay of almond trees on Mallorca (Spain)
Five species of Botryosphaeriaceae, including Neofusicoccum parvum was the dominant species, followed by E. lata, D. olivarum and N. australe, and two species are newly described, namely Collophora hispanica sp. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 320–370
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Malaysia: Castanediella eucalypti from Eucalyptus pellita, Codinaea acacia from Acacia mangium, Emarcea eucalyptigenaExpand
Managing Grapevine Trunk Diseases With Respect to Etiology and Epidemiology: Current Strategies and Future Prospects.
A number of areas of future prospect for effective management of GTDs worldwide, which, if addressed, will provide a positive outlook on the longevity of vineyards in the future are identified. Expand
Evaluation of the grapevine nursery propagation process as a source of Phaeoacremonium spp. and Phaeomoniella chlamydospora and occurrence of trunk disease pathogens in rootstock mother vines in Spain
This work shows that grapevine rootstock mother plants and the propagation process of grapevine plants should be considered as important sources of inoculum for fungal trunk pathogens, and especially of Petri disease pathogens. Expand
Phaeoacremonium: from esca disease to phaeohyphomycosis.
Information pertaining to the global distribution, pathology, ecology, and detection of these species is summarised, and a case for retaining the genus Phaeoacremonium over that of Togninia is presented. Expand
Novel Phaeoacremonium species associated with Petri disease and esca of grapevine in Iran and Spain
Eight Phaeoacremonium (Pm.) isolates from grapevines in Iran and Spain were studied with morphological and cultural characteristics as well as phylogenetic analyses of combined DNA sequences of theExpand
Effect of hot-water treatments above 50°C on grapevine viability and survival of Petri disease pathogens.
Results demonstrated that it is possible to hot-water treat grapevine planting material in Spanish nurseries using protocols with temperatures of up to 50 °C and HWTs at 53 ° C are able to eliminate Pa. chlamydospora completely and strongly reduce the re-isolation of Pm. Expand
Characterization of Cadophora luteo-olivacea and C. melinii isolates obtained from grapevines and environmental samples from grapevine nurseries in Spain
Cadophora luteo-olivacea and C. melinii isolates recovered from grapevines showing black vascular streaking and decline symptoms characteristic of Petri disease, and from different stages of the grapevine nursery process in Spain, were studied by means of phenotypical characterization, DNA analysis and pathogenicity tests. Expand
Evaluation of fungicides to control Petri disease pathogens in the grapevine propagation process
The results of this experiment demonstrated that P. chlamydospora and P. aleophilum were able to infect healthy cuttings during the hydration stage and showed that didecyldimethylammonium chloride was consistently the best treatment as a disinfectant soak for grapevine Cuttings. Expand
