IN the black rot of sweet potato caused by Ceratostomella fimbriata we found a respiratory increase—a characteristic of plant tissues infected with pathogens. We have investigated the rate of respiratory increase in the sound part next to the infected tissues during a week after the inoculation of the pathogen, the effect of 2,4-dinitrophenol on the respiration and the changes in the amount of phosphorus and nitrogenous compounds present.
