Resistance to Dutch Elm Disease Reduces Presence of Xylem Endophytic Fungi in Elms (U

Recommended Posts

Efforts to introduce pathogen resistance into landscape tree species by breeding may have unintended consequences for fungal diversity.

Interesting read!

Might be of some interest for you involved in ecology, diversity and planning.

Very interesting work, but strikes me (with respect to the authors) that a lack of mature specimens (of DED resistant stock) to study, must be a significant hinderence to getting a balanced long term view on the ecological impacts?

 

Which they kind of suggest in the paper.

 

I guess science needs the early studies to build on and reference in the future.

Can we have something with more pictures next time :sneaky2::lol:

amazing I was up near Huntingdon last w.e and could not believe the Elm there on the side of the road , had to take a second look to make sure it was, mature elm lining the sides of road , very good to see, although I am aware of the nursery man and his clone I had not realised there was Elm left alive quite as good as this, I thought you have to go to Scotland to see it, slight detour of thread my apologies cheers j

As always, any study will have to limit itself. Valid point that i'm sure will be covered in future studies...

Is this better? :sneaky2::001_tt2::lol:
