Quantitative assessments of the incidence and severity of Mycosphaerella leaf disease were made on nine provenances (encompassing the four subspecies) of Eucalyptusglobulus Labill. over three seasons in 1990 in a trial in Victoria, Australia. Defoliation was also assessed and tree height and diameter measured. Mycosphaerella leaf disease increased rapidly from winter to spring with disease incidence reaching 100% in most provenances by summer. There were highly significant differences in disease severity among provenances, with provenances from E. globulus ssp. globulus Kirkpatrick and E. globulus ssp. bicostata (Maid, et al.) Kirkpatrick being the most severely affected, while provenances f..
