The influence of one-and two-sided regulated atmospheres with lower 02-and increased CO2-concentrations in comparison with air was studied on the growth and toxin-production of 4 different mycotoxin-producing molds (A. versicolor, P. expansum, P. urticae, B. nivea). Low O2-values in the atmosphere (2-0.5%) had scarely an influence on the development and(More)
Central Europe was characterized by a humid-temperate climate in the 20(th) century. Climate change projections suggest that climate in this area will shift towards warmer temperatures by the end of the 21(st) century, while projected precipitation changes are highly uncertain. Here we show that the 2015 summer rainfall was the lowest on record since 1901(More)
Patulin was found in fruit with spontaneous brown rot (bananas, pineapples, grapes, peaches, apricots) as well as in moldy compots and in sallow-thorn juice. Fruit, vegetables and fruit and vegetable product were artificially infected with Penicillium expansum, P. urticae and Byssochlamys nivea; patulin was subsequently found in peaches, apricots,(More)
Patulin can be detected in apples and pears which have spontaneously been affected with brown rot after storage at room temperature and at 1 degrees C. Spoilage phenomena of this kind can be caused by Penicillium expansum, but also by P. urticae and Bysssochlamys nivea. If apples are stored at room temperature following a 4--5 months' storage at 4 degrees(More)

One blue-type cheese starter and 11 isolates of P. roqueforti from different foodstuffs were tested for the production of PR-toxin. 3 strains were able to produce the toxin on rice at 15 degrees C and sometimes at 30 degrees C. The toxin quantities detected were 310-960 ppb. The starter culture didn't produce any PR-toxin. The investigations with P.(More)
