Abstract

Pathogenicity of Sphaeropsis sapinea to seed, seedlings and saplings of some Central American pines.

Abstract

S. sapinea (Diplodia pinea) obtained from 5 tropical Pinus seed sources caused damage when inoculated onto seeds, seedlings and saplings of Pinus oocarpa, P. caribaea and P. pseudostrobus. Three isolates were appreciably more damaging than the other 2 and P. pseudostrobus seeds and seedlings and P. oocarpa saplings were most susceptible.
