Research Influence of Low Oxygen Levels in Aeroponics Chambers on Eucalypt Roots Infected with Phytophthora cinnamomi

Phytophthora cinnamomi is a major pathogen of Eucalyptus marginata (jarrah) in Western Australia (23). It can kill trees of all ages through infection of roots (10,27) or by girdling the trunks of 1to 7year-old trees in situations were the collar is ponded (12,19). Field observations have indicated that periods of waterlogging (low oxygen) can result in the… CONTINUE READING
