Abstract

First definite report of natural infection of Fraxinus ornus by Hymenoscyphus fraxineus.

Abstract

Hymenoscyphus fraxineus was isolated from four leaf rachises with necrotic lesions of flowering ash (Fraxinus ornus) seedlings, which had been planted on a forest site in Austria where they were exposed to a massive natural infection pressure. This represents the first definite report of natural infection of this ash species by the ash dieback pathogen.
