Cotton leaf curl disease - an emerging threat to cotton production worldwide.
Cotton leaf curl disease (CLCuD) is a serious disease of cotton which has characteristic symptoms, the most unusual of which is the formation of leaf-like enations on the undersides of leaves. TheExpand
The impact of global warming on plant diseases and insect vectors in Sweden
Cold winters and geographic isolation have hitherto protected the Nordic countries from many plant pathogens and insect pests, leading to a comparatively low input of pesticides. The changing climateExpand
Molecular control of normal and acrocona mutant seed cone development in Norway spruce (Picea abies) and the evolution of conifer ovule-bearing organs.
Reproductive organs in seed plants are morphologically divergent and their evolutionary history is often unclear. The mechanisms controlling their development have been extensively studied inExpand
Tracking aphid predation by lycosid spiders in spring-sown cereals using PCR-based gut-content analysis
Abstract Detection of prey DNA-remains in arthropod predators by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is useful when investigating food webs. In this study we estimated how long after a feeding event itExpand
Molecular diversity of the coat protein-encoding region of Barley yellow dwarf virus-PAV and Barley yellow dwarf virus-MAV from Latvia and Sweden
Summary.The sequence variability of Barley yellow dwarf virus-PAV (PAV) and Barley yellow dwarf virus-MAV (MAV) was studied by comparing 502 nucleotides from the coat protein-encoding region of sixExpand
Sequence analyses of Wheat dwarf virus isolates from different hosts reveal low genetic diversity within the wheat strain
Wheat dwarf virus (WDV) causes disease in wheat (Triticum aestivum) and barley (Hordeum vulgare) in many parts of Europe. The host range also includes many species of the family Poaceae. WDV is onlyExpand
Seven MADS-box Genes in Apple are Expressed in Different Parts of the Fruit
To study the role of MADS-box genes in developing apples ( Malus ×domestica Borkh.), clones corresponding to seven different genes, MdMADS5 to MdMADS11, were isolated from a 2-day-old apple cDNAExpand
Genetic diversity and mixed infections of begomoviruses infecting tomato, pepper and cucurbit crops in Nicaragua
Genetic diversity and mixed infections of begomoviruses in tomato, pepper and cucurbit crops in Nicaragua
Detection, distribution and control of Potato mop‐top virus, a soil‐borne virus, in northern Europe
Potato mop-top virus (PMTV; genus Pomovirus; family Virgaviridae) is transmitted bythesoil-borneSpongosporasubterraneaf.sp.subterranea,aprotoctistthatcauses powdery scab on potato. PMTV isExpand
Sequence characterization of Tomato leaf curl Sinaloa virus and Tomato severe leaf curl virus: Phylogeny of New World begomoviruses and detection of recombination
Summary.Diseases caused by begomoviruses (family Geminiviridae, genus Begomovirus) constitute a serious constraint to tomato production in Nicaragua. In this study, the complete nucleotide (nt)Expand
