Synthesis and accumulation of benzoic acid in Pinus radiata needles in response to tissue injury by dothistromin, and correlation with resistance of P. radiata families to Dothistroma pini
Within 5 days of the introduction of dothistromin into Pinus radiata needles, red band symptoms typical of those produced by Dothistroma pini appeared. When injected into needles From differentExpand

Fungistaxic effects of Pinus radiata needle epicuticular fatty and resin acids on Dothistroma pini
Abstract Bioassays of selected fatty and resin acids using Dothistroma pini as test organism have shown that a long chain fatty acid (stearic), ω-hydroxy fatty acids and oxidized resin acids (7-keto,Expand
