Dear all,
Firstly Gerrit, if i have failed to credit where it is due (again) I am 
sincerely sorry, but you know how I feel about this subject and your work, 
and also how desperately I want to study your method in detail.
I do apologise for not having directed anyone in the direction of arbtalk and 
Gerrits postings there, however in my defence i have come to the conclusion 
that we on arbtalk are not taken seriously in certain circles. I do partially 
understand why.
As for Gerrits research i will 100% back that up with my own findings in the 
field which i had concluded before I met Gerrit online (not in person)
Gerrit was also the first person to confirm my suspicions regarding certain 
abilities of other fungi, due to similar but different findings abroad.
I am no trained academic, in fact i am wholey unschooled, i am simply trying 
to do the best I can with the resources and training (limited) that i have, 
and hope that my less than superior methods of approach to subjects such as 
this do not detract from either me nor the subject. if that is the case, then 
as i have eluded to before i will happily cease to engage on such matters and 
continue unabated and alone. because it is only the advancment in this field 
that i seek, and if my failings affect that proscess, well i would be 
mortified to say the least, that is the last thing on earth i would want.
I wont deny that i like to shake it up a bit, but only in the sense that we 
NEED shaking up!
we have so much work to do, much of the information we need is already out 
there, we just need to tie the loose ends and bring several principles and 
methods, like the work of Gerrit together and we will have a very sound 
foundation from which to work from IMO

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.
