SUMMARY The characteristics of 38 English isolates of Erwinia amylovora were studied independently at East Malling Research Station and at the National Agricultural Advisory Service Laboratories at Wye. The results from both laboratories were similar and indicate considerable physiological homogeneity amongst the isolates. The joint findings are described and compared with those of other authors. 

Erwinia amylovora: general characteristics, biochemistry and serology.

In this chapter, the description of the species Erwinia amylovora as given by the taxonomists is presented, providing a means to separate this species from other groups of organisms and gives a minimal picture of what is generally recognized, by microbiologists and phytopathologists, as the species E. amylvora.

Characteristics of Erwinia‐like Organisms found in Plant Material

It is suggested, on the basis of their similarity to Erw.

GENETIC CHARACTERIZATION OF SYRIAN ERWINIA AMYLOVORA STRAINS BY AMPLIFIED FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISM TECHNIQUE

Thirty Erwinia amylovora strains, collected from the main rosaceous crop-growing regions of Syria, were chosen as representatives of all major pathogenicity groups and were genetically studied by AFLP, indicating very low genetic variations among the studied pathogen.

Taxonomic Studies on Erwinia Amylovora Isolates and their Sensitivity to Antibiotics

The biochemical characters of 21 Egyptian, 18 German and 11 isolates from other European countries were compared following the new taxonomic API 20 E and API 50 CH systems for Enterobacteriaceae, and one strain was found resistant to streptomycin-sulphate, and 30 strains to ampicillin, while other isolates were sensitive.

Characterization of Further Erwinia amylovora Strains and the Application of the API 20E System in Diagnosis

From the 85 phenotypic features studied, 72 (85%) were present in at least 90% of the strains, and only 49 (58%) of the features were shared by all strains.

Erwinia amylovora strains from outbreaks of fire blight in Spain: phenotypic characteristics

Biochemical characterisation of selected strains byAPI 20E system revealed a great homogeneity, with 80% of the Spanish strains showing one of the two majority API 20E profiles described for E. amylovora, and the remaining strains showing minor differences.

An Indigenous Virulent Strain of Erwinia amylovora Lacking the Ubiquitous Plasmid pEA29.

This is the first report of the isolation from naturally infected plant material of a pathogenic strain of E. amylovora without pEA29, but with a plasmid of approximately 70 kb not previously described, and aggressiveness assays showed that this strain exhibited a virulence level similar to other strains containing pEA 29.

The Survival of Erwinia amylovora in Airborne Particles: Tests in the Laboratory and in the Open Air

The causative organism of fire-blight, Erwinia amylovora, survives well when contained in small airborne particles held in the laboratory at relative humidities between 40 and 90 %. Although greater

Exploring diversity of Erwinia amylovora population in Serbia by conventional and automated techniquesand detection of new PFGE patterns

Forty Erwinia amylovora strains originating from different host plants and locations in Serbia and one strain from Montenegro were characterized by conventional, automated and molecular techniques, the first characterization of E. amylOVora collection of strains from Serbia using fatty acid analysis and PFGE.

Studying Erwinia amylovora isolates from Syria for copper resistance and streptomycin sensitivity.

A total of 75 Erwinia amylovora isolates, collected primarily from fire blighted quince and pear shoots, were tested for copper resistance and streptomycin sensitivity, indicating that most of the Syrian E. amylvora isolate are copper tolerant and could cause severe problems even in copper heavily sprayed orchards.

On initial plating of infected material two types of colony are often observed, the dominant type has characteristic markings on ‘Yeastrel’ peptone agar plates incubated at 30° C and the relatively featureless, and less opaque, type is called ‘atypical’.

The soil beneath diseased cherry, plum, and apricot trees is found to be a prolific source of phages for Pseudomonas mors-prunorum Wormald, the organism causing the bacterial canker disease of stone fruits.

GROWTH RATES OF PHYTOPATHOGENIC BACTERIA

In these studies the period of lag, or the latent period through which a freshly inoculated bacterial culture passes before entering its period of rapid growth, was largely eliminated by making from one to three transfers of the test bacteria at daily intervals before starting the experiment.

The Characterization of Pseudomonas fluorescens

It is thought that further divisions into subgroups (species?) are not justified, and that these characters should be used to describe accurately P. fluorescens Migula 1894, as all these characters merit equal emphasis.

From the extensive evidence, both pro and con, there seem to stand out two significant facts in favor of separating the soft-rot group into two distinct species: results of inoculating into potato plants; and (2) maltose fermentation.
