Botryosphaeriaceae are common endophytes of trees. Some species are also known to be pathogens. It is, therefore, assumed that endophytic Botryosphaeriaceae are often involved in general die-back diseases. Here we test this assumption in severe branch die-back observed on Acacia karroo trees in the Pretoria area of South Africa. The presence of the Botryosphaeriaceae was compared between healthy and diseased tissue on the same trees. Eight Botryosphaeriaceae species were isolated from die-back… CONTINUE READING
