Thanks for your reaction! I almost thought that everybody
was in a deep sleep :)
I'm using a commonly occurring fungus of the temperate zones
of the world. In Canada they are intending to apply this fungus
(Chondrostereum purpureum) as some kind of a biological silvicide.
BTW we have done a survey in Vancouver Island to quantify its
natural occurrence as a saprophyte. In conclusion, I don't want
to introduce a new organism as in classical biological control.
In the mycoherbicide approach we'using native pathogens and
enhance their effectivity by, for instance, a special application
