Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Cercosporella dolichandrae from Dolichandra unguiscati, Seiridium podocarpi from PodocarpusExpand
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

Fungi Associated with Esca and Grapevine Declines in Spain : A Three-Year Survey
A survey of 140 vineyards in different production areas of Spain was conducted from 1999 to 2001 to identify pathogenic grapevine wood fungi and their role in esca disease and grapevine declines, as well as in the decline of young grapevines in Spain. Expand
Evidence for multiple introductions and clonality in Spanish populations of Fusarium circinatum.
Spanish populations are significantly differentiated and structured into two distinct groups, each one including one of the dominant genotypes observed, which suggests that two independent introductions occurred into Spain that subsequently underwent clonal divergence and admixture. Expand
Occurrence of Fungal Pathogens Associated with Grapevine Nurseries and the Decline of Young Vines in Spain
This research confirmed the importance of fungal grapevine trunk pathogens associated with the decline of young vineyards in Spain and suggested the connection between the presence of these fungi in the nurseries and the disease in the fields. Expand
Outbreak of Pitch Canker Caused by Fusarium circinatum on Pinus spp. in Northern Spain.
During the winter of 2003-2004, dieback symptoms were observed on Pinus radiata and P. pinaster in pine nurseries in Asturias (northern Spain). Small groups of affected seedlings appeared randomlyExpand
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
Characterization of Cylindrocarpon Species Associated with Black Foot Disease of Grapevine in Spain.
82 Cylindrocarpon isolates associated with black foot disease of grapevines in Spain were studied by means of phenotypical characterization, DNA analyses, and pathogenicity tests and were clearly separated into two groups which were in agreement with BT species identification. Expand
