Abstract

Roots of four trees with symptoms of oak decline and roots of one healthy tree of Quercus robur were examined for the presence of fungi by using two methods (moist chambe rmethod and strong surface sterilisation method). Forty-five species were isolated in this project. Significant differences in composition of mycobiota based on the used method were detected. Fusarium solani, F. proliferatum, Sphaerostilbella aureonitens, Cylindrocarpon destructans, Pénicillium simplicissimum, P. purpurogenumvar. rubrisclerotium, Trichodermaviride, Ophiostomapiceae s.l. and Pénicillium glandicola were the most frequent fungi isolated by the moist chamber method. Cryptosporiopsis radicicola, dark sterile mycelium sp. 1, Cylindrocarpon destructans, ChaetomiuM globosum, Cylindrocarpon didymum, Pénicillium simplicissimum and Trichoderma koningii were dominant species observed by the method of strong surface sterilisation.
