Further studies in the current series revealed marked differences between 4 strains of M. lacrymans in their capacity for the destruction of pine sapwood blocks, the highest weight reductions (42%) over a test period of 16 wks. being caused by the standard strain III (Eberswalde 315, 1936) and the lowest (20%) by BAM 133 (isolated in 1937 from the wood of a Berlin house) and 277 (Berlin wood, 1941), while BAM 238 (floor of a Berlin house, 1939) was intermediate (33%).
