The occurrence of charcoal disease caused by Biscogniauxia mediterranea on chestnut-leaved oak (Quercus castaneifolia) in the Golestan Forests of Iran
Plant Disease 95 (7), 876-876
Abstract: During 2010, chestnut-leaved oak (Quercus castaneifolia) trees growing in Iran were observed with symptoms of discolorations and browning of the leaves, and a brown-black discoloration of the phloem and bark. The infected trees died exhibiting symptoms of charcoal disease. The fungus Biscogniauxia mediterranea was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and ITS sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
