Dothichiza, poplar canker, due to its significance in the establishment of intensive poplar plantations, has been drawing attention for already a long time. The aim of the test was to study some of the most important physiological characteristics of the fungus, such as conidial germination germ tube growth and growth of mycelium at different temperatures on the isolates from north Potisje and to compare the study results with the domestic and foreign literature sources. The aim of this study was not to identify the different lower systematic categories, but to identify the differences between individual isolates - populations, depending on the most significant ecological factors, such as temperature.
