Title:Natural Availability of Oak Wilt Inocula
Author(s):Curl, E.A.
Subject(s):Oak Wilt
Endoconidiophora fagacearum
Fungus Disease
Abstract:IN the past 10 years, oak wilt, caused by Endoconidiophora fagacearum Bretz, has become increasingly important as a destroyer of oak trees in the eastern half of the United States. It was first described about 13 years ago as a fungus disease in Wisconsin (Anonymous 1942), but earlier reports of dying oaks indicate that it probably has been present there for the past 20 years. The studies reported herein are intended mainly to supply information concerning the availability of oak wilt inocula and the relative importance of Illinois environmental conditions at different times of the year on the longevity of the causal fungus in nature. It seems that such information would be applicable in finding the means of spread of the disease beyond root graft distances and in selecting and developing effective control measures.
