Transmission of European stone fruit yellows phytoplasma by Cacopsylla pruni.
Experimental transmission of European stone fruit yellows phytoplasma to Japanese plum cv. ‘Ozark Premier’ was achieved using Cacopsylla pruni, caught in the field or raised on infected plants underExpand

Multilocus sequence analysis reveals the genetic diversity of European fruit tree phytoplasmas and supports the existence of inter-species recombination.
The genetic diversity of three temperate fruit tree phytoplasmas 'Candidatus Phytoplasma prunorum', 'Ca. P. mali' and 'Ca. P. pyri' has been established by multilocus sequence analysis. Among theExpand

Transmission Characteristics of the European Stone Fruit Yellows Phytoplasma and its Vector Cacopsylla Pruni
A study was carried out on the transmission parameters of the European stone fruit yellows phytoplasma by the vector Cacopsylla pruni. In the greenhouse, using groups of psyllids, the minimumExpand
