Quambalaria shoot blight, caused by the fungus Quambalaria pitereka, is a serious disease affecting the development of spotted gum (Corymbia citriodora subsp. citriodora, C. citriodora subsp. variegata, C. henryi and C. maculata) plantations in subtropical and tropical Australia. Incorporation of screening for resistance to Q. pitereka into current breeding programs is essential for the future development of plantations using spotted gum and Corymbia hybrids. The aim of this study was to… CONTINUE READING
