Combined multiple gene genealogies and phenotypic characters differentiate several species previously identified as Botryosphaeria dothidea.
TLDR
A combined phylogeny of the three gene regions used in this study showed that the genus Botryosphaeria represents two distinct phylogenetic assemblages that correspond to species with Diplodia and Fusicoccum anamorphs.
Two new species of Fusarium section Liseola associated with mango malformation.
TLDR
Fusarium mangiferae is conspecific with strains that were previously identified as F. subglutinans and reported to be the causal agent of malformation in mango growing areas throughout the world, and Fusarium sterilihyphosum has been isolated only from malformed mango tissue in South Africa.
Eucalyptus Rust: A Disease with the Potential for Serious International Implications.
TLDR
Advances in eucalyptus rust research are reviewed here, with a focus on topics such as distribution, host range, pathogen specialization, symptomatology, etiology, epidemiology, and control.
Pitch canker caused by Fusarium circinatum — a growing threat to pine plantations and forests worldwide
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarise contemporary knowledge relating to the pitch canker pathogen, with a particular focus on its threat to plantation forestry.
Speciation and distribution of Botryosphaeria spp. on native and introduced Eucalyptus trees in Australia and South Africa
TLDR
Data from the present study provide the first holistic overview of the species of Botryosphaeria associated with Eucalyptus in both native and exotic environments.
Lasiodiplodia gonubiensis sp. nov., a new Botryosphaeria anamorph from native Syzygium cordatum in South Africa
TLDR
Compared with other species of Botryosphaeria using morphological characteristics and DNA sequence data of the rDNA internal transcribed spacers, ITS1 and ITS2, it is concluded that the isolates from S. cordatum represent an undescribed Lasiodiplodia sp.
Multiple gene sequences delimit Botryosphaeria australis sp. nov. from B. lutea.
TLDR
Re-analyses of GenBank data showed that B. australis also occurs on other native Australian hosts, namely a Banksia sp.
Phylogenetic and morphological re-evaluation of the Botryosphaeria species causing diseases of Mangifera indica.
TLDR
The morphological and molecular results confirmed that the fungi previously identified from mango as species of Dothiorella belong to Fusicoccum and a key is provided to distinguish these species based on anamorph morphology in culture.
Taxonomy, phylogeny and identification of Botryosphaeriaceae associated with pome and stone fruit trees in South Africa and other regions of the world
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, which aims to provide real-time information about the phytochemical properties of bark of trees in South Africa.
