Abstract

Phage infecting Actinomadura verrucosospora, Actinomadura pusilla, and Nocardiopsis flava were isolated from mulches applied to avocado trees at the University of Western Australia experimental plots. The physiochemical properties, plaque morphology, host range, and particle morphology of the phage isolated are described. Taxonomic implications of the reactions of some cell wall chemotype III actinomycetes to Actinomadura phage are also discussed.
