Title MYCOLOGICAL STUDIES ON THE ANGIOSPERM ROOT PARASITE CYNOMORIUM-COCCINEUM L AND 2 OF ITS HALOPHYTIC HOSTS
Source Biologia Plantarum
Abstract The fungal colonization of the angiosperm root parasite Cynomorium coccineum and the halophytic hosts Limonium delicatulum and Arthrocnemum glaucum were investigated in a Mediterranean salt marsh in March 1992. The main fungal inhabitants on the leaves or shoot surface of the test plants were Aspergillus niger, Penicillium chrysogenum and Cladosporium herbarum. The qualitative analysis of the fungal species associating the parasite, the hosts and the non-infected plants showed similar pattern. However, the total population exhibited quantitative differences coupled with the amount and the chemical composition of the exudates on plant surface and the quantity of transpired water. The fungal catch from the aerial shoot (inflorescence) of the parasite was higher than that collected from either the leaves or aerial shoots of non-infected or host plants. The fungal density on the leaves of L. delicatulum was higher than those isolated from the aerial shoots of A. glaucum. Infection by C. coccineum caused a marked drop in the total fungal population on leaves or shoot surfaces of the hosts as compared to the corresponding non-infected individuals. The stimulative effect of washings on spore germination of some isolated fungal species was matched with the density of fungi on the target plants.
