This paper is concerned with the species ofGymnosporangium and their host relationships. Interest centers, not on how many hosts a fungus species may occupy, but rather with how the hosts are distributed among the species of the fungus. 

The distribution of Gymnosporangium fuscum and its implication on pear cultivation in Sweden

The only possibility to reduce the spread of pear rust is to rupture its life-cycle by eliminate the infected juniper host and avoid new plantings of these.

Gymnosporangium Species – An Important Issue of Plant Protection

Abstract Rusts (Fungi, Basidiomycota, Pucciniomycotina, Pucciniomycetes, Pucciniales) are one of the most important causal agents of diseases and they are infecting many plants including cereals and

Pest categorisation of Gymnosporangium spp. (non‐EU)

Abstract Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Panel on Plant Health performed a pest categorisation of Gymnosporangium spp. (non‐EU), a well‐defined and distinguishable group of

Phylogenetic studies in Ravenelia esculenta and related rust fungi

The phylogenetic position of Ravenelia esculenta among other rust fungi besides broad separation of Uredinales into two clades is determined and there is phylogenetic correlation between molecular and morphological data.

Studies of environmental factors (temperature and relative humidity) effecting the development of pear rust (Gymnosporangium fuscum) and studies of control methods

Climate measurements of temperature and humidity conducted during the growing season of 2008, at three locations each representing a climate zone combined with continuous observations of the juniper hosts to evaluate the release of spores gave an affect on the infection rate of pear rust lesions in relation to untreated branches.



Studies on the Isolation and Growth of Plant Rusts in Host Tissue Cultures and Upon Synthetic Media. I. Gymnosporangium

SUMMARYThrough the use of a tissue-culture technique, systemically infected dual-membered callus cultures have been established from the telial galls of Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae produce...


Gymnosporangium minus n. sp. occurs on Cupressus sempervirens L. near Athens, Greece, and is the only species on a non-juniperus telial host in Europe. G. guatemalianum n. sp. was found on

Illustrated genera of rust fungi.

Two new genera of rust fungi are described that have been described as "superficial" and "spatially cryptic" in their structure and distribution.

The genus Gymnosporangium in Western Canada

Eleven species of Gymnosporangium native to Western Canada and two exotic species, one of European and one of Asian origin from cultivated junipers imported into Canada, are described and illustrated


This study of geographical distribution shows that species of the genus Gymnosporangium are found in the northern hemisphere only and occur most abundantly in the temperate portion. Each of the three

Gymnosporangium Gaeumannii in North America

In 1966 Dr. Y. Hiratsuka and I collected near Banff, Alberta, what was thought to be telia of G. gaeumannii, which contained single-celled, multi-pored and pedicellate spores much like aeciospores of Gymnosporangium; however, because of the pedicels and lack of a peridium there is no doubt that they are urediniospores.
