The effect of the duration of hypoxia on root and lesion extension and root morphology of clonal Eucalyptus marginata infected with Phytophthora cinnamomi
Burgess, T., McComb, J.A., Hardy, G.E.St.J. and Colquhoun, I. (1997) The effect of the duration of hypoxia on root and lesion extension and root morphology of clonal Eucalyptus marginata infected with Phytophthora cinnamomi. In: 11th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society, 29 September - 2 October, Perth, Western Australia.
In waterlogged (hypoxic) soils a combination of altered host physiology and increased zoospore motility is thought to pre-dispose roots of E. marginata to infection by P. cinnamomi. However, we have found that roots of E. marginata are less susceptible to infection after 6 days of hypoxia. In the present study, the effect of 2-29 days of hypoxia was examined on the susceptibility of E. marginata roots to infection by P. cinnamomi.
