Distribution and bioinformatic analysis of the cerato-platanin protein family in Dikarya
TLDR
A genomewide study of the distribution of this family in fungi showed that cerato-platanin homologs existed in both Ascomycota and Basidiomycota but were lost in early branches of jelly fungi as well as in some groups with yeast or yeast-like forms in their life cycle.
Antimicrobial defenses and resistance in forest trees: challenges and perspectives in a genomic era.
TLDR
An overview of the current knowledge about these responses of forest trees to their pathogens is provided, highlighting the achievements of the past decade, discussing the current state of the field, and emphasizing the prospects and challenges for the near future.
Description of a new putative virus infecting the conifer pathogenic fungus Heterobasidion parviporum with resemblance to Heterobasidion annosum P-type partitivirus
TLDR
The complete sequences of two double-stranded RNA segments from the fungus Heterobasidion parviporum constitute the genome of a new virus assigned to the family Partitiviridae and named HetRV2, indicating that horizontal transfer between these intersterile fungal species is possible.
Role of the HaHOG1 MAP Kinase in Response of the Conifer Root and But Rot Pathogen (Heterobasidion annosum) to Osmotic and Oxidative Stress
TLDR
The heterologous expression of the HaHOG1 sequence in yeast confirmed that the gene is able to restore the osmotolerance and oxidative tolerance in the S. cerevisiae hog1Δ mutant strain.
Endophytic fungi of Norway spruce roots in boreal pristine mire, drained peatland and mineral soil and their inhibitory effect on Heterobasidion parviporum in vitro
TLDR
All the diversity indices suggest relatively low or mid-level versatility of the endophyte community, with mineral soil sites having the lowest index and drained peatland the highest.
Activation of defence pathways in Scots pine bark after feeding by pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
TLDR
The obtained data provide an important insight into the transcriptional response of conifer trees to insect herbivory and illustrate the massive changes in the host transcriptome upon insect attacks.
Biological degradation of torrefied wood and charcoal
Torrefaction is an interesting option to pretreat biomass in order to obtain a fuel with improved handling and combustion characteristics, but there are a number of questions related to the supply
Increased streamflow in catchments affected by a forest disease epidemic.
TLDR
This study is the first to illustrate that chronic canopy disturbance from a foliage pathogen can influence catchment scale hydrology and found that runoff ratios increased in five catchments, all with an area impacted by SNC.
Infection of Picea abies clones with a homokaryotic isolate of Heterobasidion parviporum under field conditions
TLDR
In this study, 40-year-old clonal Norway spruce stems and roots were inoculated with a homokaryotic isolate of H. parviporum and the infection frequency and necrotic lesion lengths were recorded.
