An interspecific Gossypium hirsutum x Gossypium barbadense backcross population of 75 BC1 plants was evaluated for 1014 markers. The map consists of 888 loci, including 465 AFLPs, 229 SSRs, 192 RFLPs, and 2 morphological markers, ordered in 37 linkage groups that represent most if not all of the 26 chromosomes, altogether spanning 4400 cM. Loci were not(More)
ABSTRACT Microplots experiments were carried out at Córdoba, southern Spain, from 1986 to 1989 to determine the effects of sowing date in the management of Fusarium wilt of chickpea as influenced by virulence of the pathogen race and by cultivar susceptibility. A total of 108 epidemics of the disease were described, analyzed, and compared to assess the(More)
The current understanding of the placental vascular tree largely derives from time-consuming morphometric analyses performed by conventional histology, electron microscopy of corrosion casts and three-dimensional reconstructions based on physical tissue sections. In the present study, we demonstrate for the first time that micro-computed tomography(More)
ABSTRACT Development of 108 epidemics of Fusarium wilt of chickpea caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris were studied on cvs. P-2245 and PV-61 in field microplots artificially infested with races 0 and 5 of F. oxysporum f. sp. ciceris in 1986 to 1989. Disease progression data were fitted to the Richards model using nonlinear regression. The shape(More)
ABSTRACT Three field experiments were conducted in 1997, 1998, and 1999 to investigate the effects of angular leaf spot and rust, separately or combined, on host growth and yield of individual bean plants (Phaseolus vulgaris). In each experiment, three treatments were established by inoculating cv. Carioca with Phaeoisariopsis griseola, Uromyces(More)
To the Editor: The highly domestic mosquito species Aedes aegypti, a tropical, nonnative vector of dengue and yellow fever, has been identified in several desert communities, including the city of Tucson and the border towns of Douglas, Naco, and Nogales (1). Ae. aegypti has now been found in the southern Arizona communities of Benson and Sahuarita Heights,(More)
ABSTRACT Eleven previously published models of plant disease epidemics, given as differential equations with a rate and a shape parameter, are compared using general model characteristics as well as their usefulness in fitting observed data. Six out of the eleven models can be solved analytically resulting in epidemic growth functions, while the others can(More)
ABSTRACT Five field experiments were conducted to investigate the relationship between the severity of visible disease (X), area under the disease progress curve (AUDPC), healthy leaf area index on any given day (HLAI), radiation intercepted by healthy leaf area on any given day (HRI), healthy leaf area duration (HAD), total healthy leaf area absorption(More)
The effect of the primary infection site by Fusarium graminearum and F. culmorum within wheat ears on Fusarium head blight (FHB) was investigated under controlled conditions. FHB development was assessed visually and thermographically following inoculation by: (i) spraying ears, or injecting inoculum into spikelets on (ii) tip, (iii) centre and (iv) base of(More)
