Abstract

The imperfect fungus Fusarium oxysporum dominated the root surface of first-year seedlings of woody plants grown in the forest nursery in Řečany near Pardubice, Czechoslovakia. The second most frequent species was Cylindrocarpon radicicola whose relative frequency increased towards the end of the growing season. The morphological variability of isolated strains of Fusarium oxysporum was studied; notwithstanding their great variability they all fall within the range of this complex species. The ecological conditions for the occurrence of Fusarium oxysporum on the root surface and the saprophytic or parasitic relations between this fungus and the higher plants are discussed on the basis of personal observations and reports in the literature.
