Influence of moisture on rate of decay of loblolly pine root wood by Heterobasidion annosum


Influence of moisture on rate of decay of loblolly pine root wood by Heterobasidion annosum



Canadian Journal of Botany 58(1): 36-39



ISSN/ISBN: 0008-4026

DOI: 10.1139/b80-005

Pinus taeda root segments were decayed by the fungus over a broad range of wood (33-317%) and soil (36-259%) moisture contents in modified soil-block tests. Max. wt. loss occurred at 50-286% wood moisture content. Decay was inhibited at wood moisture contents >290%. Water moved rapidly into the root segments by capillarity and some decay occurred within 2 weeks.
