Environmental isolation of Cryptococcus neoformans var. gattii from Eucalyptus tereticornis

J Med Vet Mycol. 1992;30(5):407-8.


As an extension of the previously established association between Cryptococcus neoformans var. gattii and Eucalyptus camaldulensis (River red gum) we have now found a similar relationship between C. neoformans var. gattii and the closely related Eucalyptus tereticornis (Forest red gum). The global distribution of E. tereticornis is similar to that of E. camaldulensis.
