David,
 
1). Tony Croft has been using the term 'biotrophic parasite' in relation to 
G. adspersum/australe on here. I questioned him about these labels and asked 
him whether he could point me to any research that demonstrated that the 
fungus was 'biotrophic' and/or 'parasitic', because this was news to me, but 
he hasn't replied yet. Can you point me in the right direction?

1). Tony uses my terms and the results of my in situ research on biotrophic 
and/or necrotrophic parasites, which I already have explained on Arbtalk, see 
: 2. http://arbtalk.co.uk/forum/529703-post53.html .
 
2). Similarly, that G. adspersum/australe is deterministically fatal to 
Acers, no matter the circumstances, is also news to me. Where does the 
research for this conclusion come from ? 

 
2). From my own field research on the effects on the stability and condition 
of different deciduous tree species of the biotrophic parasitic G. australe, 
of which the mycelium causes a white rot with selective delignification, that 
is most detrimental to Acer, Platanus, Populus, Salix, Tilia, Aesculus (Anne 
Frank tree) and Quercus rubra.
