Abstract
Although damping-off is known to cause considerable loss before and after emergence of seedlings in forest nurseries, little is known of its role in seedling mortality after direct seeding in artificial regeneration of mixed eucalypt forests. Findings reported in this thesis are the result of a survey for the presence of damping-off fungi in soils and dying seedlings, and tests of their pathogenicity to a range of eucalypts found in the Wombat State Forest of Victoria. This study was carried out in conjunction with a research programme established by the victorian Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands to determine which factors govern the successful establishment of ~ obliqua and E. radiata in three seed-bed types under five levels of overwood.
