Significance of the black line within oil palm tissue decayed by Ganoderma boninense

Author(s): Ariffin Darus*; Idris Abu Seman*; Abdul Halim Hassan*

A historical study was conducted on the black line found in stem tissue of oil palm infected with Ganoderma. The line was of fungal origin and formed by the action of a single mycelium. Deeply embedded within the line were masses of swollen hyphal cells which form resting structures. These structures might be critical for the prolonged survival of the pathogen within infected oil palm tissue buried in soil.
