    Description

    In September 2007, a collaborative effort was made to survey Armillaria species in three general areas of south-central Mexico. Collected Armillaria isolates will be subjected to DNA analyses to examine genetic relationships with other Armillaria species. These studies will provide baseline information for examining evolution of Armillaria spp., assessing potential for hybridization or invasive species risk of Armillaria spp., and evaluating potential impacts of climate change. During this trip, observations were also made that may provide insights to other forest diseases, such as Annosus root disease, white pine blister rust, dwarf mistletoe, oak wilt, and scorch. Because of common research interests in forest pathology, it seems essential that collaborations are strengthened between the USA and Mexico.
