Abstract
Bamboo is the backbone of North East India. It is well known that bamboo is attacked by various groups of decay causing fungi. In the present study, resistance of Bambusa tulda and Dendrocalamus hamiltonii against Fusarium proliferatum (Soft rot fungi) and Schizophyllum commune (White rot fungi) were studied at varying stages of bamboo maturity. Three age groups of bamboo (1, 3 and 5 years) were used to test the resistance against the decay fungi. The results revealed that weight loss caused due to fungal degradation decreased significantly with age in both the test fungi. However, Schizophyllum commune caused greater weight loss compared to the Fusarium proliferatum in both the species of bamboo.
