The Endophytic Mycobiome of European Ash and Sycamore Maple Leaves: Geographic Patterns, Host Specificity and Influence of Ash Dieback

Markus Schlegel, Valentin Queloz & Thomas Niklaus Sieber
The European ash (Fraxinus excelsior) is threatened by the introduced ascomycete Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, the causal agent of ash dieback. Endophytic fungi are known to modulate their host’s resistance against pathogens. To understand possible consequences of ash dieback on the endophytic mycobiome, F. excelsior leaves were collected in naturally regenerated forests and the fungal communities analyzed by classic culture and Illumina amplicon sequencing using a newly developed and validated fungal-specific primer. Collections were done in the...
