Ceratocystis pirilliformis was first isolated from wounds on Eucalyptus nitens in Australia and subsequently found in a similar niche on E. grandis in South Africa. Artificial inoculation studies under field conditions in South Africa resulted in bark lesions and sap-stain, suggesting that the fungus is a pathogen of potential importance to forestry in South Africa. Because Eucalyptus spp. are native to Australia and C. piriliformis was first found there in the absence of disease it has been… CONTINUE READING
