Phosphite reduces disease extension of a Phytophthora cinnamomi front in Banksia woodland, even after fire
We determined the effect of phosphite application as a high-volume spray to the understorey, and injection of overstorey species, on disease front extension and rate of extension of PhytophthoraExpand

Effective concentration of phosphite in controlling Phytophthora cinnamomi following stem injection of Banksia species and Eucalyptus marginata
Summary The effect of phosphite concentration on lesion development by Phytophthora cinnamomi in stems and roots of Banksia grandis and Eucalyptus marginata and in stems of Banksia coccinea wasExpand

A stem injection of phosphite protects Banksia species and Eucalyptus marginata from Phytophthora cinnamomi for at least four years
Longevity of effectiveness of stem-injected phosphite against Phytophthora cinnamomi was determined in two ways. Injected and not injected Banksia grandis and Eucalyptus marginata were challengeExpand

Dispersal of Phytophthora cinnamomi through lateritic soil by laterally flowing subsurface water
Phytophthora cinnomomi was recovered from water flowing at the base of a lateritic soil about 1 m deep and overlying concreted duricrust on a hillslope supporting a severely diseased forest ofExpand

Cryptodiaporthe melanocraspeda canker as a threat to Banksia coccinea on the south coast of Western Australia.
In 1989, large numbers of Banksia coccinea in the south coast region of Western Australia were observed dying downward from the apical branches. Plant death in 15-year-old B. coccinea increased fromExpand

Infection of the stem and large roots of Eucalyptus marginata by Phytophthora cinnamomi
Field inoculation studies suggest that infection of Eucalyptus marginata Donn. ex. Sm. by Phytophthora cinnamomi Rands is mainly limited to unsuberized feeder roots (1, 2, 6) with infection of largeExpand

Susceptibility of Plant Species in Coastal Dune Vegetation of South-western Australia to Killing by Armillaria luteobubalina
Estimates of the susceptibility of plant species of coastal dune vegetation tokilling by Armillaria luteobubalina Watling & Kilewere obtained from the occurrence of mycelial sheaths of the pathogenExpand

Occurrence of Armillaria luteobubalina and Pathogen-mediated Changes in Coastal Dune Vegetation of South-western Australia
Sixty-two Armillaria luteobubalina Watling & Kiledisease centres were assessed along the coast from near Cervantes, 160 kmnorth-west of Perth, to Cape Arid, 120 km east of Esperance. DiseaseExpand

Application of phosphite in a high-volume foliar spray delays and reduces the rate of mortality of four Banksia species infected with Phytophthora cinnamomi
There were two experiments in which three phosphite concentrations were sprayed onto the foliage of either Banksia brownii, B. baxteri or B. coccinea naturally infected with Phytophthora cinnamomi inExpand
