  • a Information from Robinson et al. (2016). NCYC 4144 and NCYC 4145 were isolated from sessile oaks (Quercus petraea) and NCYC 4146 was isolated from English oak (Quercus robur).

  • b Assuming average United Kingdom woodland boundary conditions for sessile and English oaks, these trunk girths suggest tree ages of ∼220 years old (FRI10), 200 years old (FRI11), and 130 years old (FRI5) according to the guidelines at http://www.wdvta.org.uk/pdf/Estimating-the-age-of-trees.pdf.

  • c Twenty-five trees had uncoppiced trunk girth estimates. These were mostly smaller than those with C. albicans (Wilcoxon test, Embedded Image).
