Phytoplasmas found in the French territory of Wallis and Futuna were identified by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis (RFLP) and sequence analysis. They were associated with diseases of the crop plants cassava (Manihot esculenta), Indian mulberry or noni (Morinda citrifolia) and pineapple (Ananas comosus) and the weeds Emilia sonchifolia (red tassel) and Polygalapaniculata. The phytoplasmas found were most closely related to members of the… CONTINUE READING
