Isolates with conidial morphologies corresponding to botryosphaeriaceous species were obtained from adult grapevines (Vitis vinifera) showing symptoms of die-back and esca in vineyards from all grape-growing regions of Uruguay and also from canes of asymptomatic mother plants in a commercial nursery. The morphological description of some of the anamorphs… (More)
The main goal of this work was to detect whether Cytospora chrysosperma and Fusicoccum eucalypti are present as endophytes of symptomless hypocotyls, cotyledons, flowers, capsules, peduncles of flowers in order to interpret an earlier finding of their presence in seeds, seedling stems and twigs of E. globulus. Segments from these organs as well as from bark… (More)
Teratosphaeria pseudoeucalypti was found causing leaf blight disease on Eucalyptus globulus and E. maidenii in forestry plantations in Uruguay. The pathogen was identified by morphological characteristics and sequence analysis of the ITS-2, part of the βT and part of the EF-1α DNA.
Apple, pear and peach orchards are usually planted in close proximity, and they might share pathogenic fungal species affecting different plant organs. In particular, species of Botryosphaeriaceae have been indicated as responsible for wood diseases in these fruit species. Symptoms frequently observed in Uruguay include papyraceous cankers in apple trunks,… (More)
