Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A number of fine root pathogenic oomycetes and fungi, including Phytophthora cinnamomi, Pythium ultimum var. ultimum, Pythium undulatum, P. violae, Fusarium sambucinum, Verticillium albo-atrum and Verticillium rexianum were isolated from soils taken from under Scots pine trees at five forest sites in north Scotland. Morphological and molecular data strongly supported the identification of P. cinnamomi from 3 of the sites investigated.
