ABSTRACT
The article presents an update on the Nectria flute canker ecology research programme in New Zealand. The research programme focuses on pathogen dispersal, pathogen infection mechanisms and pathogen survival in the host. Nectria (N.) fuckeliana, the fungus that is associated with the Nectria flute canker, produces three different spore types. Of the three, the sexual ascospores appear to be the most common in plantations. Field trials show that N. fuckeliana is able to use a variety of methods to enter and infect trees, including entry through pruned branch stubs, deep sapwood wounds, and shallow stem wounds.
