Bermuda grass white leaf (BGWL) is a destructive, phytoplasmal disease of Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon). The causal pathogen, the BGWL agent, differs from other phytoplasmas that cluster in the same major branch of the phytoplasma phylogenetic clade in <2.5% of 16S rDNA nucleotide positions, the threshold for assigning species rank to phytoplasmas under the provisional status 'Candidatus'. Thus, the objective of this work was to examine homogeneity of BGWL isolates and to determine whether… CONTINUE READING
