Title: First report of an Armillaria root disease pathogen, Armillaria gallica, associated with several new hosts in Hawaii

Author: Kim, M.-S.; Hanna, J. W.; Klopfenstein, N. B.

Date: 2010

Source: Plant Disease. 94(12): 1510.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The loss and decline of native tree species caused by invasive plant pathogens is a major threat to the endangered endemic forests of the Hawaiian Islands (3). Thus, it is critical to characterize existing pathogens to evaluate potential invasiveness. In August 2005, rhizomorphs and mycelial bark fans of genet HI-4 were collected from dead/declining, mature trees of introduced Monterey pine (Pinus radiata) on the southern flank of Mauna Kea, Hawaii (approximately 19°42?55?N, 155°26?48?W, elevation 2,175 m).

Keywords: Armillaria, Armillaria gallica, invasive plant pathogens
