Pathogenic variation and virulence related responses of Ascochyta lentis on lentil
Ascochyta blight of lentil (Lens culinaris ssp. culinaris) is caused by Ascochyta lentis. The disease causes severe damage to all aerial parts of the plant and may lead to total crop loss duringExpand

Evidence and Consequence of a Highly Adapted Clonal Haplotype within the Australian Ascochyta rabiei Population
The Australian Ascochyta rabiei (Pass.) Labr. (syn. Phoma rabiei) population has low genotypic diversity with only one mating type detected to date, potentially precluding substantial evolutionExpand
