Growth rates of Microdochium spp. Three replicated assays were recorded for each isolate and each temperature. For each taxon up to five independent isolates were tested. Results show total averages from all replicated assays and all isolates. The tested reed isolates were for M. phragmitis 4/97-39, 5/97-16, 5/97-30, and 6/97-20, and for M. bolleyi A7, 4/97-7, 5/97-48, 5/97-49, and 5/97-54. The tested reference strains were for M. bolleyi CBS 172.63 and CBS 137.64, and for M. nivale CBS 320.78 and CBS 110.94. Bars indicate standard deviations.
