The ecology of Armillaria mellea in Britain: biological control



The ecology of Armillaria mellea in Britain: biological control



Ann. Bot., Lond 32(126): 293-300



The following experiments were begun in 1959 in southern Britain in a stand of Quercus robur (with some Q. sessiliflora), for the control of Armillaria mellea invading tree roots: trees were (1) ring-barked two years before felling, (2) frill-girdled and poisoned with 2, 4, 5-T two years before felling, and (3) left untreated and felled in the normal way. Contrary to experience in E. Africa, colonization of roots by A. mellea was not reduced by the treatments.
