Potential climatic suitability for establishment of Phytophthora ramorum within the contiguous United States
Phytophthora ramorum has caused extensive mortality to tanoak and several oak species in coastal California. This pathogen has infected at least 72 plant species under natural conditions and 32Expand
Synchronisms and Significance: Reevaluating Interconnections Between Middle Kingdom Egypt and the Southern Levant
The relationship and interconnections between Middle Bronze Age Palestine and Middle Kingdom Egypt have long been the subject of continued debate, influenced by chancing perspectives on the nature ofExpand
Endophytic-Host Selectivity of Discula umbrinella on Quercus alba and Quercus rubra Characterized by Infection, Pathogenicity and Mycelial Compatibility
The results of this study suggest that the endophyte–host relationship is one of host selective preference for Q. alba, but that theendophyte has the ability to maintain the endophtic/pathogenic life cycle on the less preferred host species, Q. rubra. Expand
Technique for large scale isolation of Discula umbrinella and other foliar endophytic fungi from Quercus species
This technique provides an efficient means to collect large numbers of fungal isolates necessary for fungal ecology and genetic variation studies and is easily modified for isolation of other fungi residing within a leaf. Expand
Host Selectivity and Genetic Variation of Discula umbrinella Isolates from Two Oak Species: Analyses of Intergenic Spacer Region Sequences of Ribosomal DNA
Isolates within each IGS group were further analyzed for nucleotide polymorphisms to confirm genotype identity and genotype diversity to identify IGS groups (groups I–V) based on single nucleotide sequence differences. Expand

A protocol for direct sequencing of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products from mycelia of Discula umbrinella, a fungal endophyte, using bufferless electrophoresis is described. This improvedExpand
Detection of mycelium and oospores of Phytophthora megasperma forma specialis glycinea by vital stains in soil.
Two vital stains, fluorescein diacetate and tetrazolium bromide, may be more appropriate for determining the viability of dormant fungal structures such as oospores for observation and detection of fungal propagules in soil. Expand
