1) to be variable in its capacity, largely depending on host species and host 
vitality. there are some species of tree, with particular attention drawn to 
Aesculus hippocastinum and variants within which G australes abilities to 
penetrate reaction zones is frightening and rapid. on oak it is a different 
animal all together
1) this is true for "white oaks" such as Quercus robur and Q. petrea, not for 
"red oaks" like Q. rubra (see 2).
2) one standing dead and one living (for a limited timeframe) with g australe 
(both Aesculus) One willow also dying with ganoderma australe (now in panic 
mode) so prediction that the tree will soon be dead some time next year (to 
be confirmed) I have already amassed a library of other cases that illustrate 
its potential.
2) Over the past 15 years, I have monitored and assessed the damage done by 
the mycelium of G. australe in over a hundred Quercus rubra, Aesculus, Acer, 
Salix, Populus and Tilia with (partially) sterile annual or perennial panic 
fruiting at the base of or up to one metre height on the trunks and almost 
always the drill of the resistograph went in at zero value resistance.
