Abstract

Species composition and dynamics of seasonal development of tinder fungi on trees (Polyporus squamosus, Fomes fomentarius, Phellinus igniarius, P. robustus, Pleurotus ostreatus, Schizophyllum commune and Pholiota aurivella) were studied in 5 areas of Uzbek SSR, USSR, during 1986. They attacked mainly growing trees, causing significant economic damage. Cutting and felling of heavily infected trees are recommended for control.
