Decay in the upland Oak stands of Kentucky

A study of the incidence and volume of decay, by host and fungus species, in a total of 1490 sampled trees of Quercus coccinea, Q. prinus, Q. velutina, Q. rubra and Q. alba. The percentage of all trees with decay increased with diameter from 7% in the smallest d.b.h. class to 100% in trees _ 19.6 in. d.b.h.
