Species in the family Botryosphaeriaceae are common pathogens causing fruit rot and dieback of many woody plants. In this study, 150 Botryosphaeriaceae isolates were collected from olive and other hosts in Spain and California. Representative isolates of each type were characterized based on morphological features and comparisons of DNA sequence data of(More)
Anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum acutatum and C. gloeosporioides, is a major fungal disease of olive in many countries. In Spain, the disease has been associated only with a characteristic rot and mummification of mature fruit. The purpose of this study was to determine whether C. acutatum could infect other plant tissues that may serve as sources of(More)
Anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum spp., is a destructive disease of olive fruit worldwide. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of agronomical and weather factors on inoculum production using detached olive fruit and on the development of epidemics in the field. The pathogen produced very large numbers of conidia on rotted (>1.87(More)
The influence of temperature, wetness duration, and planting density on infection of olive fruit by Colletotrichum acutatum and C. simmondsii was examined in laboratory and field experiments. Detached olive fruit of 'Arbequina', 'Hojiblanca', and 'Picual' were inoculated with conidia of several isolates of the pathogen and kept at constant temperatures of 5(More)
AIMS To phenotypically, physiologically and molecularly characterize the causal agent of olive anthracnose in the northern Tunisia and to study its genetic variability and pathogenicity. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 43 isolates were obtained from symptomatic olives collected from four regions in northern Tunisia. A range of morphological and(More)
Verticillium wilt in olive trees, caused by the soil-borne fungus Verticillium dahliae, is one of the most serious diseases of this crop due to high tree mortality and the difficulty of control. One of the major constraints to developing control measures against this disease is the lack of inoculation methods to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments.(More)
130 A retrospective study of patients with acute myocardial ischemia syndrome, mainly middle-aged and elderly women, was published in july 2001. The main features of acute myocardial ischemia were typical triggering circumstances, initial ECG mimicking acute myocardial infarction (AMI with transient appearance of Q waves and large negative T waves), mild or(More)
