Passage and Survival of Chlamydospores of Phytophthora cinnamomi Rands, the Causal Agent of Forest Dieback Disease, Through the Gastrointestinal Tracts of Termites and Wild Birds
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Chlamydospores of Phytophthora cinnamomi Rands have been shown to survive in the intestinal tracts of termites (Nasutitermes exitiosus) and two species of forest birds indigenous to West Australian jarrah forests. Viable chlamydospores were recovered from bird feces within the normal rate of passage time for food through the gut. The above factors would allow these creatures to function as vectors for the spores.
