Ecological genetic interactions between a clonal host plant (Spartina pectinata) and associated rust fungi Puccinia seymouriana and Puccinia sparganioides


The spatial scale of genetic diversity among patches of a host plant could affect the likelihood of pathogen adaptation to the host. If host patches are genetically distinct, pathogen adaptation to local host genotypes may occur. To study this issue, we focused on the ecological and genetic interactions between two rust fungi, Puccinia seymouriana and P… (More)
