Abstract in another language

Communities of dark pigmented epifoliar fungi of various deciduous tree species fromhabitats in the surroundings of Bayreuth (Upper Franconia, Germany) were compared tothose of evergreen plants overwintered in a greenhouse. The fungi were mainly assignableto the genera Aureobasidium, Cladosporium, Alternaria and Phoma, with most plants hostingmore than one fungal genotype or taxon. While a host preference was not detected amongthe fungal taxa, the community composition significantly differed between annual andperennial leaves. The results indicate that the epifoliar fungal community found on leavesof deciduous Central European trees represents an early developmental stage of the same,but further developed community, found on older evergreen leaves. We therefore assumethat the life-span of deciduous leaves is too short for the fungal community to reacha steady state.
