CONTROL METHODS OF THE PARASITIC FUNGI OF THE GENUS ARMILLARIA.

Objective

TO DEVELOP NEW METHODS OF IDENTIFICATION OF ARMILLARIA SPECIES, TO EXAMINE THEIR DISTRIBUTION IN VARIOUS FOREST ECOSYSTEMS AND TO IMPROVE CONTROL METHODS.

I. IMPROVEMENT OF IDENTIFICATION METHODS:
A. THE DIFFERENCIATION BETWEEN THE VEGETATIVE CULTURE MATS OF DIFFERENT ARMILLARIA SPECIES (THIS STUDY WILL NECESSITATE MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS-MULTIPLE DISCRIMINANT ANALYSIS)
B. THE FRUCTIFICATION OF THE DIFFERENT ARMILLARIA SPECIES.
C. THE REACTION OF DIFFERENT ARMILLARIA SPECIES TO POLYPHENOLS AND TERPENES.
D. THE SEPARATION OF PROTEINS AND THE RELEVATION OF SPECIFIC PROTEINS (BY THE ELECTROPHORESIS OF ISOENZYMES AND IMMUNOLOGY).
E. METHODS INVOLVING MOLECULAR BIOLOGY (THE ELECTROPHORESIS OF DNA FRAGMENTS OBTAINED BY THE ACTION OF RESTRICTION ENZYMES AND THE HYBRIDATION OF DNA).

II. INVESTIGATION INTO THE DISTRIBUTION AND ROLE OF ARMILLARIA SPECIES IN THE PRINCIPAL FOREST ECOSYSTEMS.

III. IMPROVEMENT OF CONTROL METHODS AGAINST ARMILLARIA ECOLOGICAL, GENETICAL, CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL CONTROL.
