Mark record


A morphological study of several isolates of Ceratocystis ulmi has revealed that spores and hyphae of this fungus contain minute cytoplasmic particles that behave like spores (microendospores). The different stages of development of these microendospores are described and some implications of the findings are briefly discussed.
