First report of laurel wilt, caused by Raffaelea lauricola, on sassafras (Sassafras albidum) in Alabama
Plant Disease 97 (5), 688-688
Abstract: During 2011, sassafras trees, Sassafras albidum, growing in Alabama, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of wilted and dead leaves, and streaks of black discoloration in the xylem. The fungus Raffaelea lauricola was isolated from the diseased plants. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and rDNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
