BIOLOGICAL, EPIDEMIOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR INSIGHTS INTO THRIPS-IRIS YELLOW SPOT TOSPOVIRUS PEST COMPLEX
Iris yellow spot tospovirus (IYSV) (genus Tospovirus, family Bunyaviridae), transmitted by Thrips tabaci L. causes an economically important disease in both onion bulb and seed crop in the USA and other onion-growing regions ...
HOST SPECIFICITY AND PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG TILLETIA SPECIES INFECTING WHEAT AND OTHER COOL SEASON GRASSES
The 140 species of Tilletia (Ustilaginomycotina, Basidiomycota) are biotrophic pathogens that cause bunt and smut diseases of grasses (Poaceae). Among the most economically important species are the wheat bunt pathogens, ...
Mating system and speciation of the citrus brown spot pathogen, Alternaria alternata
High levels of genotypic diversity have been found in several putatively asexual fungi, including as many as 15,000 phytopathogenic fungi. How this level of diversity has arisen and is maintained in putatively asexual ...

EFFECTS OF METEOROLOGICAL FACTORS ON CONIDIA INFECTION AND PRODUCTION OF ERYSIPHE NECATOR, PODOSPHAERA CLANDESTINA, AND PODOSPHAERA MACULARIS ON THE LEAVES OF GRAPE, CHERRY AND HOP
Grape, cherry and hop powdery mildew, caused by Erysiphe necator, Podosphaera clandestina, and P. macularis, are common problems in WA. Since conidia concentration is strongly related to disease intensity, it is an effective ...
PREDICTION OF DISEASE DAMAGE, DETERMINATION OF PATHOGEN SURVIVAL REGIONS, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF INTERNATIONAL COLLECTIONS OF WHEAT STRIPE RUST
Stripe rust of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Erikss., is an economically important disease worldwide. Three studies were conducted in regional, national, and international ...
Plant-nematode interactions and the application of RNA interference for controlling root-knot nematodes
Plant parasitic nematodes are significant pests in major agricultural systems. Sedentary endoparasites like root knot nematodes (RKN; Meloidogyne sp.) obtain plant-derived nutrients from feeding sites formed in host roots ...
