Effect of Fomes annosus on seedlings of Picea abies in the presence of Boletus bovinus

Hyppel, Arne


The mycorrhiza-forming fungus Boletus bovinus (L. ex FR.) O. KUNTZE was shown to protect seedlings of Norway spruce from the usually fatal attacks, which result from treatment with the root rot fungus Fomes annosus (FR.) CKE. New techniques were developed for the culture and application of both species of the microorganisms. The investigation was performed under greenhouse conditions.
