Uredo rangelii, a taxon in the guava rust complex, newly recorded on Myrtaceae in Australia
Uredo rangelii (myrtle rust) is reported for the first time in Australia — detected on 22 April 2010 — from Agonis flexuosa, Callistemon viminalis and Syncarpia glomulifera, but DNA sequence data place it in the P. psidii complex. Expand
Speciation and distribution of Botryosphaeria spp. on native and introduced Eucalyptus trees in Australia and South Africa
Data from the present study provide the first holistic overview of the species of Botryosphaeria associated with Eucalyptus in both native and exotic environments. Expand
Introducing the Consolidated Species Concept to resolve species in the Teratosphaeriaceae
From the DNA sequence data generated, it is shown that each one of the five coding genes tested, reliably identify most of the species present in this dataset (except species of Pseudocercospora), and the ITS gene serves as a primary barcode locus as it is easily generated and has the most extensive dataset available.

Unravelling Mycosphaerella: do you believe in genera?
DNA sequence data derived from the LSU gene in the present study distinguish several clades and families in what has hitherto been considered to represent the Mycosphaerellaceae, which represents numerous genera and several families yet to be defined in future studies. Expand
Impact of the invasive rust Puccinia psidii (myrtle rust) on native Myrtaceae in natural ecosystems in Australia
Assessments revealed high levels of damage by P. psidii to immature leaves, shoots and tree crowns and subsequent crown loss (crown transparency) and tree mortality in field assessments of R. rubescens and Rhodomyrtus psidioides across their native range. Expand
Variation in susceptibility of Eucalyptus globulus provenances to Mycosphaerella leaf disease
Quantitative assessments of the incidence and severity of Mycosphaerella leaf disease were made on nine provenances (encompassing the four subspecies) of Eucalyptusglobulus Labill. over three seasonsExpand
