Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Neoseptorioides eucalypti gen. & sp. nov. from Eucalyptus radiata leaves, Phytophthora gondwanensis from soil, Diaporthe tulliensis from rotted stem ends of Theobroma cacao fruit, Diaporthe vawdreyi from fruit rot of Psidium guajava, Magnaporthiopsis agrostidis from(More)
Resistance to anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum capsici and C. acutatum, was investigated in Capsicum baccatum PBC80 and PBC1422 and C. chinense PBC932. Mature green and ripe fruit were inoculated with 13 isolates of the two Colletotrichum species PBC80 contained the broadest spectrum of resistance to both Colletotrichum species because none of the(More)
SUMMARY A genome linkage map was developed for Ascochyta rabiei (Pass.) Labrousse, (teleomorph) Didymella rabiei (Kovachevski), an important pathogen causing ascochyta blight in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). The map was constructed using 96 progeny generated from a single pseudothecium produced from a cross between a USA MAT-2 isolate and an Australian(More)
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis (incl. Mulderomyces gen. nov.), Fusicladium paraamoenum, Neotrimmatostroma paraexcentricum, and Pseudophloeospora eucalyptorum on leaves of Eucalyptus spp., Anungitea grevilleae (on leaves of Grevillea sp.),(More)
Pisum sativum specific sequence tagged microsatellite site primers were used to amplify genomic profiles from 15accessions of P. sativum L. that represented the genetic base of the Australian field pea-breeding program and five accessions of the wild related species P. fulvum. The STMS primers were used to assess genetic relationships among the Pisum(More)
Genomic libraries enriched for microsatellites from Colletotrichum capsici, one of the major causal agents of anthracnose disease in chilli pepper (Capsicum spp.), were developed using a modified hybridization procedure. Twenty-seven robust primer pairs were designed from microsatellite flanking sequences and were characterized using 52 isolates from three(More)
A novel set of microsatellite markers were developed and employed for geographical and temporal population analyses of Stagonosporopsis tanaceti, the cause of ray blight of pyrethrum in Australia. Genotyping of 407 isolates, using 13 markers, suggested an asexual mode of reproduction with significant linkage disequilibrium and high levels of clonality. Low(More)
Stagonosporopsis chrysanthemi, S. inoxydabilis, and S. tanaceti are closely related Ascomycetes associated with ray blight of the Asteraceae. To date, only S. tanaceti has been identified in Australia, incurring substantial losses to the pyrethrum industry. In contrast to the homothallic S. chrysanthemi and S. inoxydabilis, a sexual state has not been(More)
Fusarium species were isolated from roots, crowns, basal petioles but rarely from the leaves of infected pyrethrum (Tanacetum cinerariifolium) plants showing poor growth and stunting in yield-decline sites of northern Tasmania and the Ballarat region of Victoria, Australia. Multigene phylogenetic analyses using the internal transcribed spacer (ITS), the(More)
The genomes of Chrysoporthe austroafricana, Diplodia scrobiculata, Fusarium nygami, Leptographium lundbergii, Limonomyces culmigenus, Stagonosporopsis tanaceti, and Thielaviopsis punctulata are presented in this genome announcement. These seven genomes are from endophytes, plant pathogens and economically important fungal species. The genome sizes range(More)
