Dothistroma pini and D. septosporum are morphologically similar species, infecting more than 82 pine species. Species D. septosporum is widely spread throughout the world, while D. pini is reported from USA, Russia and some EU-countries. Lately, incidence and severity of the disease symptoms have increased.
The aim of our work with Dothistroma is to clarify the occurrence of both phytopathogenic Dothistroma species in Slovenia and to determine the susceptibility of some pine species to the Dothistroma needle blight disease. With the participation in COST Action FP1102 we will establish scientific collaboration on the field of Dothistroma and will be involved in the exchange of scientific experience. Dothistroma isolates from Slovenia will be available for international exchange and will help to get an insight into the Dothistroma complex in the EU-region. Through the participation in the COST action FP1102 valuable information about possible actions how to control or to eradicate the disease will be gained.
