The influence of spore dose and interrupted wet periods on pear scab infection was studied under controlled conditions by assessing disease development on pear seedlings. Under optimal conditions (20°C and continuous wetness), the severity of leaf scab (lesions/cm2) increased with conidial...
Characterisation of populations of Phragmidium violaceum in Australia is necessary to assess the efficacy of this exotic rust fungus for the biological control of various genotypes of European blackberry (Rubus fruticosus L. aggregate). P. violaceum was introduced to Australia on at least three...
Mycosphaerella lateralis was isolated from diseased eucalypt leaves in Queensland and Western Australian plantations. This is the first report of the species outside of Africa.
Citrus tatter leaf virus (CTLV) has the potential to cause major losses to the Australian citrus industry if an infected clone is propagated, because the predominant rootstocks are intolerant of CTLV infection. We have developed a robust and specific semi-nested reverse transcription—polymerase...
The specific epithets that have been used for the Fusarium causal agent of pine pitch canker and its known world distribution are reviewed. Records from Italy, Iraq and Chile are in need of confirmation, while the records from Massachusetts and Washington (United States of America) are rejected.
Banana streak virus is identified for the first time in Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya, Indonesia.
This paper represents the first of a series dealing with fungi associated with Proteaceae cultivated in Australia. Several leaf pathogens are newly recorded, including Botryosphaeria proteae, Coleroa senniana, Kabatiella proteae, Mycosphaerella jonkershoekensis and Mycosphaerella lateralis from...
Meloidogyne trifoliophila (Bernard and Eisenback) has been recorded for the first time in Australia on white clover (Trifolium repens L.) roots on the north coast of New South Wales and southern Queensland. Identification was based on morphological observations and a host differential test.
Narcissus spp., showing virus-like symptoms from Otago Province New Zealand, were surveyed for viruses using ELISA and mechanical transmission tests. High incidence of virus infection was detected at five sites. Cucumber mosaic virus, Narcissus latent virus, Narcissus mosaic virus, Narcissus tip...
The efficacy of fosetyl-Al (soil drench), metalaxyl-M (soil drench), fluazinam (soil drench) and potassium phosphonate (foliar spray) in controlling Phytophthora cinnamomi root infections of Leucospermum cvv. High Gold, Sunrise and Spider was compared. The Leucospermum plants were potted, placed...
