First report of Diplodia corticola in Greece on kermes oak (Quercus coccifera)
Plant Pathology 59 (4), 805-805
Abstract: During 2007, kermes oak (Quercus coccifera) shrubs and trees growing in Greece were observed with symptoms of extensive branch and shoot dieback and cankers. The fungus Diplodia corticola 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.
