The response of soil microbial communities to the infection of kauri (Agathis australis) seedlings with Phytophthora agathidicida
New Zealand's ancient kauri (Agathis australis) forests are under threat from the spread of dieback disease, caused by the soil-borne pathogen Phytophthora agathidicida. Characterizing the response of the soil microbiota ...
Soil microbial diversity in adjacent forest systems – contrasting native, old growth kauri (Agathis australis) forest with exotic pine (Pinus radiata) plantation forest
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS), 2020-05)
Globally, the conversion of primary forests to plantations and agricultural landscapes is a common land use change. Kauri (Agathis australis) is one of the most heavily impacted indigenous tree species of New Zealand with ...
Soil microbial community restructuring and functional changes in ancient kauri (Agathis australis) forests impacted by the invasive pathogen Phytophthora agathidicida
New Zealand's culturally iconic, ancient kauri (Agathis australis) forests are threatened with extinction as a result of dieback caused by an invasive and highly virulent soil-borne pathogen (Phytophthora agathidicida). ...
Identification of Burkholderia and Penicillium isolates from kauri (Agathis australis) soils that inhibit the mycelial growth of Phytophthora agathidicida
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society, 2021-02-07)
Phytophthora agathidicida is a highly virulent pathogen of kauri (Agathis australis) and the causal agent of dieback disease in New Zealand’s kauri forests. This study aimed to identify microbial isolates isolated from ...
