Natural resistance of the branchwood of Ceiba pentandra (Linn.) Gaertn. to fungal decay at two contrasting phenological phases

Natural resistance of the branchwood of Ceiba pentandra (Linn.) Gaertn. to fungal decay at two contrasting phenological phases

Nigerian Journal of Botany 2: 119-125

The natural resistance of ovendried test blocks of Ceiba pentandra branchwood (from a tree at the University of Nigeria campus) to fungal decay by Chaetomium globosum, Coriolus versicolor, Gloeophyllum trabeum and Coniophora puteana was investigated at 2 phenological stages using the agar-block technique. The test blocks (1.2x1.2x1.2 cm) were cut from branches removed from the tree at leafless and freshly leafy stages.
