Seasonal variation of Microdochium spp. on Lake Constance reeds. Summary of nested-PCR assays on 251 DNA preparations from tissue samples of P. australis harvested over a period of three years. Detection frequency for each target shows the percentage of samples producing a band after the second step of the nested-PCR. Results from all sites and all host organs were pooled. Symbols on top of the columns indicate significant variation between the respective months when analyzing each fungus separately (binomial test with P <0.05). Occurrences of M. phragmitis differed significantly when comparing April with July (*), July with November (+), and September with November (#).
