DescriptionIsolations and water flow-rate measurements made on short stem sections of young red oak seedlings inoculated with the oak wilt pathogen, Ceratocystis fagacearum, about 1 to 2 inches above the soil line, revealed that the oak wilt pathogen was isolable first near the inoculation site. As time after inoculation increased, the pathogen was isolated progressively farther up the stem until, when leaf symptoms became visible, it was present throughout the stem. At the onset of leaf symptoms, many but not all petioles contained the pathogen. The pathogen was never isolated from leaf blade homogenates or vessel washings from stem sections. The resistance to water flow through the vessels of the short stem sections was progressively less at greater distances up the stem from the inoculation site.
