Inhibitory influence of inorganic salts on banana postharvest pathogens and preliminary application to control crown rot
Dipping the bananas for 10–15 min in these concentrations reduced the incidence of crown rot (compared with the untreated fruits) 17 days after harvest in fruits treated with NaClO by 67%, with NaHCO3 by 62%, withNaCl by 38%, and with CaCl2 by 33%.
Addition and reexamination of Japanese species belonging to the genus Cercospora and allied genera. IV. Newly recorded species from Japan (1)
Abstract In the fourth report of the present series, five species of the genus Cercospora and allied genera were added to the Japanese fungus fiora: Cercospora brunkii Ellis et Galloway, C.
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of the maple powdery mildew (Sawadaea, Erysiphaceae) inferred from nuclear rDNA sequences.
Seven major clades of Sawadaea, each represented by powdery mildew specimens collected from a single or a small number of closely related sections of Acer (maples), were identified, suggesting that a close evolutionary relationship exists between Acer (host) andsawadaea (parasite).
Ascospore formation and morphology in two species of the genusErysiphe remaining immature on the living host plant
In the present experiments, some observations before and after overwintering were made on the cleistothecia of E. cumminsiana and E. galeopsidis, and their teleomorphic characteristics including those of ascospores are also described.
Two new species of powdery mildew fungi from Japan
The following two new species of powdery mildew fungi were found onStephania cephalantha (Menispermaceae) andViburnum opulus var.calvescens (Caprifoliaceae) in Japan:1.Erysiphe stephaniae onS.
Renaming of the Erysiphe Fungi on Maniok-eibish and Flax, and First Report of an Oidium sp. on Kenaf in Japan
Through the reexamination of the powdery mildew fungi on maniok-eibish and flax which have been described as Erysiphe polygoni in earlier papers, these fungi were regarded severally as new
Powdery Mildews and Their Causal Fungi on Some Spice and Medicinal Plants
Taxomic examinations of five powdery mildew fungi found on two new host plants in Japan, rosemary and downy thorn apple, found the anamorph on rosemary morphologically agreed well with that of Erysiphe galeopsidis observed on various plants of the Labiatae, and the fungus of Euoidium type was regarded as a new Oidium species, O. eucalypti-globuli.
Identification of fungi isolated from nonchemical banana fruits and farms in the Philippines
It is shown that non-chemical banana farm is the origin of fungal inoculum that causes postharvest diseases of fruits, and the fungi that were isolated from the diseased non- chemical banana fruits in Japan also originated from the Philippines.
