Noteworthy decline and wood decay on beech by the largely unknown ascomycete Hypoxylon cohaerens


Noteworthy decline and wood decay on beech by the largely unknown ascomycete Hypoxylon cohaerens



Gesunde Pflanzen 58(4): 225-230

In the years 2005 and 2006, several declining and recently dead beech trees were investigated in a large city park in Dresden, Germany. The ascomycete H. cohaerens, which is characterized as a saprophytic fungus by literature, was identified as a conspicuous cause of the disease. The symptoms of the infection, the morphologically and physiologically characteristics of the fungus in situ and in vitro as well as the factors of predisposition are presented in the article.
