CONTRIBUTIONS ON THE STUDY OF THE MYCROFLORA OF APRICOT TREES
Numerous fungi were isolated from totally or partly dried apricot roots, and branches. The pathogenicity of the strains of Cytospora cincta, Coniothyrium piricola and Peyronellea glomerata was tested under laboratory conditions. In the fungi tested for pathogenicity, the minimum temperature for fungal growth and fructification is 4-6°C, the optimum one ranges between 20-26°C, and 30°C is the maximum one for Cytospora cincta (but not for Peyronellea glomerata and Coniothyrium piricola which develop even at 34°C). The aspect and colour of the colony varies in terms of the fungus, the temperature and the medium used. The determination of the temperature thresholds of these fungi is important for knowing the cond1tions which cause or favour their appearance in apricot tree orchards.
