Abstract:

Studies reported previously have shown that inoculation of Myriophyllum spicatum and M. heterophyllum with enzyme-enhanced pectinolytic or cellulolytic microorganisms originally isolated from these species significantly accelerated plant necrosis. Subsequent studies, reported herein have attempted to assess plant response to inoculation under a variety of stress conditions, to define infection thresholds, and to enlarge the scale of infection trials.
