Evidence for local adaptation and pleiotropic effects associated with melanization in a plant pathogenic fungus.


We combined a common garden experimental design with digital image analysis to determine how melanization responds to temperature and fungicide stress in 126 strains of Rhynchosporium commune sampled from nine global field populations. We found that different temperatures and fungicide stress significantly affected the degree of melanization. The nine field… (More)
