What causes the scent to develop in the aromatic resinous wood known as agarwood, or aloeswood?

0 votes
AA highly acid soil
BA particularly long drought
CFungus or bacteria
DClose association with Macaranga plants and Crematogaster ants tending Coccus scale insects

Correct Option: 3  

Fungus or bacteria
The scented oil in the resin in some species in the genus Aquilaria, large evergreen trees native to southeast Asia, forms as a protective secretion round areas in a tree invaded by bacteria or fungus, sometimes as a result of penetration by the Ambrosia Beetle. The affected wood, also known as oud, is a highly prized perfume either as the wood for burning or incense, or as an oil.
