A Phytophthora was found associated with wilt and mortality of Italian alder (Alnus cordata) seedlings in a nursery in northern Tuscany, Central disease is one of the major constraints to alder survival in northern Europe (3). Symptoms included sparse yellowish brown foliage with abnormally small leaves, dark stained necrosis of the bark at the collar level, and reduction of the. In summer , common alder (Alnus glutinosa) trees with crown dieback, lower trunk lesions and tarry exudations were observed in a riparian forest in Northwest Hungary. An unusual Phytophthora, partially similar to P. cambivora, was isolated from diseased trees and from surrounding soil. A comparison with alder Phytophthora from other countries indicated that certain traits of the Hungarian.

Phytophthora decline of riparian alder populations has recently become an important problem in many European countries, including the Czech Republic. The causal agent, Phytophthora alni, has spread quickly in the Czech Republic. Hundreds of kilometres of riparian alder stands, especially in the western part of the country, have been severely affected to date. Phytophthora alni, a soil- and waterborne pathogen, causes aggressive root and collar rot on riparian alder populations (1,2,4). The disease has been described from several European countries with a destructive impact in Great Britain (1,2). All European alder species and the red alder (Alnus rubra) are highly susceptible.

Abstract During and an unusual Phytophthora was consistently isolated from bark lesions at the stem bases of dying alder in Southern Britain.
