Vegetative propagation by stem cuttings and mini-cuttings has been used worldwide for growing Eucalyptus plants. However, clones and hybrids of this plant present a great variability in their rooting capacity, apart from a gradual decrease in the rooting potential due to the ontogenetic age of the mother plant. Several studies have demonstrated that some(More)
The heritability of genetic resistance of radiata pine against Fusarium circinatum was not clear. We demonstrated that there are at least 3 QTLs that could be involved in this resistance/susceptibility. A genetic linkage map was developed for Pinus radiata, using Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP), Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR), Selective(More)
Rhizospheric and endophytic bacteria were isolated from the rizosphere and root tissue of Eucalyptus nitens. The objective of this work was to evaluate their capacity to promote growth in seedlings of the same species under greenhouse conditions. The isolates that improved seedling growth were identified and characterized by their capacity to produce(More)
The Chilean strawberry (Fragaria chiloensis) fruit has interesting organoleptic properties, but its postharvest life is affected by gray mold decay caused by Botrytis cinerea. The effect of preharvest applications of methyl jasmonate (MeJA) or chitosan on the molecular defense-related responses and protection against gray mold decay were investigated in(More)
Phytophthora kernoviae is an invasive species first described from Britain and later New Zealand. We conducted surveys for Phytophthora species in forests in southern Chile. Symptomatic fallen leaves of Drimys winteri were encountered in a native forest. P. kernoviae was isolated. This is the first report of P. kernoviae outside of UK and New Zealand.
