Phytophthora alni on Alnus glutinosa reported for the first time in Spain
Plant Pathology 59 (4), 798-798
Abstract: Since the mid 2000s, alder (Alnus glutinosa) trees growing in Spain were observed with symptoms of sparse yellowish and small-sized foliage, dieback of branches, increased fruit production and dark-stained necrosis of the bark at the collar and lower stem, leading to death. The fungus Phytophthora alni 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.
