Mark record


Ceratocystis ulmi (Buism.) C. Moreau was grown in liquid media with four different nitrogen compounds, eight sugars, and four concentrations of glucose. The fungus was grown at room temperature in the dark as still cultures, and in daylight as still and as shake cultures. The pH of the culture filtrates appeared to be dependent on the sugar used as the main source of carbon. The dry weight of the fungus fluctuated regularly with age. This is shown to be independent of the factors investigated and has been attributed to autolysis of the fungus. Implications of the findings are discussed.
