Abstract

Artificially introduced zoospores of Phytophthora cinnamomi were shown to invade non-wounded and deliberately wounded periderm at the lower stem and collar of one-year-old seedlings of Eucalyptus marginata (jarrah) growing in a rehabilitated bauxite mine, during late autumn/early winter. Lesions were not produced in the majority of seedlings despite the demonstrated presence of the pathogen in the symptomless stem tissue.
