Species of Sonderhenia are saprobic and are involved in nutrient recycling within the ecosystem.
Industrial relevance and applications
There are currently no industrial applications of Sonderhenia.
No biocontrol use has been reported from Sonderhenia.
Biochemical importance of the genus, chemical diversity or applications
The chemical diversity of Sonderhenia is unknown. Further studies are needed.
Diversity of the genus
Sonderhenia comprises three species known on Eucalyptus species (Myrtaceae). Sonderhenia has been reported only from California and Australia. Sonderhenia seems to be host specific. Future studies can lead to discovery of more species of Sonderhenia.
