Abstract

Inoculation experiments show that the black-butt disease of Black Wattle (Acacia mearnsii), cultivated for the high-quality tannins in its bark, appears to be caused by Phytophthora nicotianae var. parasitica. Two syndromes of the disease can be distinguished. The first takes the form of spreading mottled lesions, possibly related to infection by zoospores, and the second of tongues of diseased bark, originating from the penetration of mycelium.
