The effect of mono terpenes on the mycelial growth of fomes annosus



The effect of mono terpenes on the mycelial growth of fomes annosus



European Journal of Forest Pathology 7(6): 374-384



Monoterpenes naturally occurring in the wood of Picea abies inhibited fungal growth. This effect was correlated with the concentration of the terpenes and varied among the terpenes. .alpha.-Pinene was the most active, and .DELTA.-3-carene the most harmless monoterpene. Two days after treatment most of the cultures showed increased growth; inhibitory activity was probably affected by experimental conditions. Mixtures of terpenes which correspond with the natural terpene fraction of the heartwood and sapwood were also applied. Cultures treated with the sapwood mixture showed faster growth in the recovery stage than the cultures treated with the heartwood mixture. The significance of the results for the resistance of P. abies against F. annosus is discussed.
