First report of Teratosphaeria zuluensis causing stem canker of Eucalyptus grandis in Uganda
Forest Pathology 44 (3), 242-245
Abstract: Teratosphaeria stem canker is one of the most important diseases to have emerged on non-native plantation-grown Eucalyptus trees globally. In 2012, Eucalyptus grandis trees with typical Teratosphaeria stem canker symptoms were observed in Uganda. Multigene sequence analyses of isolates from these cankers led to the identification of T. gauchensis, previously recorded in Uganda, and T. zuluensis. This study represents the first report of T. zuluensis in Uganda. Furthermore, this is the first report of the co-occurrence of T. zuluensis and T. gauchensis in a single area.
