The Phytophthora alni complex exhibits strong host specificity, damaging all European alder species. Under the same niches, co-infections of these Phytophthora spp. are expected to affect their pathogenic behavior and the disease development. The present study aims to assess the effects of co-inoculations of P. xalni (Pa), P. xmultiformis (Pm), P. uniformis (Pu) and P. plurivora (Pl) on Alnus incana, which is a representative European alder species.
