Dothistroma Septosporum on Firs (Abies Spp.) in the Northern Baltics. Drenkhan, R.; Adamson, K.; Jürimaa, K.; and Hanso, M. Forest Pathology, 44(3):250–254, June, 2014.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
In the spring of 2008, Dothistroma septosporum, a damaging quarantine pathogen of pine foliage, was documented in Järvselja (southeastern Estonia), apparently for the first time, on white fir (Abies concolor). Thus, a new host species and genus for the fungus were recorded. Infection of white fir by D.~septosporum, and also of some other fir species, was monitored annually on a transect proceeding from southeastern Estonia to northern Latvia. As a result, D.~septosporum was detected also on silver fir (Abies alba). It is not clear why this fungus with a worldwide distribution appeared on this new host genus definitely in northern Europe.
