Hosts and distribution of Armillaria species in Serbia
MetadataShow full item record
Twenty-five tree species were recorded as hosts for five European Armillaria species in studies on forest ecosystems in Serbia. Armillaria was most frequently isolated from the conifers Picea abies and Abies alba and from the deciduous trees Fagus moesiaca and Quercus petraea. A. mellea and A. gallica coexisted in hardwood forests in northern and central parts of Serbia, while A. ostoyae and A. cepistipes were mostly present in coniferous forests in the southern mountain region of Serbia. The distribution depended on the Armillaria species, altitude, and the forest type.
