Fungal Growth and Branch Abcission

I am currently working on branch abcission in White Birch (Betula papyrifera). 
 My feeling is that the dead branches abcise by the action of various 
decay microorganisms.  I have isolated several different fungi from 
various branches, and I am  attempting to determine a successional 
pattern for the colonization of the branches.  If anybody has any thoughts on 
this matter it would be greatly appreciated.
