Title: Geographic Variation in Disease Susceptibility of American Sycamore

Author: Cooper, D. T.; Filer, T. H.; Wells, O. O.;

Date: 1977

Source: Southern Journal of Applied Forestry 1(4):21-24

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Leaf scorch, top dieback, and lethal bole cankers were found in two progeny tests of sycamore in Mississippi. Both tests indicated that southern seed sources are more disease resistant than northern seed sources and that some progenies within seed source have even greater resistance. Although eight organisms associated with one or more of the disease symptoms were identified, determination of the primary organism causing lethal cankers will require further research.

Keywords: Platanus occidentalis
