A novel hybrid with the nuclear background of Phytophthora alni subsp. alni exhibits a mitochondrial DNA profile characteristic of P. alni subsp. uniformis
TLDR
Evidence of an unusual genomic combination of two subspecies occurring in two P. alni isolates from Hungary is reported, which likely emerged as a result of hybridization events in the P.Alni population between Paa and Pau.
Evidence for homoploid speciation in Phytophthora alni supports taxonomic reclassification in this species complex.
Strong genetic differentiation between North American and European populations of Phytophthora alni subsp. uniformis.
Alder decline caused by Phytophthora alni has been one of the most important diseases of natural ecosystems in Europe during the last 20 years. The emergence of P. alni subsp. alni -the pathogen
Patterns of genetic diversification in the invasive hybrid plant pathogen Phytophthora x alni and its parental species P. uniformis.
TLDR
The genetic structure of P. x alni and P. uniformis populations in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Sweden seemed to reflect the physical isolation of river systems and a loss of heterozygosity at one or a few microsatellite loci compared with other MLGs.
The expansion of Phytophthora clade 8b : host adaptation and speciation through hybridization and polyploidy
TLDR
Three new species are presented on the basis of genetic and morphological differences and host specificity in Phytophthora clade 8b that are all host-specific, slow-growing and specifically infect herbaceous crops at low temperatures.
Genetic Diversity and Origins of the Homoploid-Type Hybrid Phytophthora ×alni
TLDR
Combined microsatellite and mtDNA results confirmed that P. ×alni originated from multiple hybridization events that involved different genotypes of the progenitors, shedding new light on the evolution of an emerging plant pathogen.
Molecular Characterization of Natural Hybrids Formed between Five Related Indigenous Clade 6 Phytophthora Species
TLDR
Evidence for natural hybridization among a group of five closely related indigenous clade 6 Phytophthora species isolated from waterways and riparian ecosystems in Western Australia is presented.

Molecular Characterization of Natural Hybrids of Phytophthora nicotianae and P. cactorum.
ABSTRACT Hybrid isolates of Phytophthora nicotianae x P. cactorum from five different hosts (Cyclamen, Lavandula, Lewisia, Primula, and Spathiphyllum spp.) were identified by their atypical
Phytophthora alni sp. nov. and its variants: designation of emerging heteroploid hybrid pathogens spreading on Alnus trees.
TLDR
The problems of designating emergent species hybrids under the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature and the reasons for the taxonomic choices made are discussed.
SCAR–based PCR primers to detect the hybrid pathogen Phytophthora alni and its subspecies causing alder disease in Europe
TLDR
Three pairs of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) primers derived from Sequence Characterized Amplified Regions (SCAR) that allow discrimination among the three subspecies of P. alni were developed and successfully used to detect P.Alni directly in different substrates such as infested river water and soil, and necrotic alder bark.
Phylogenetic analysis of Phytophthora species based on ITS1 and ITS2 sequences of the ribosomal RNA gene repeat
TLDR
With improved technology, rapid automatic sequencing of PCR-amplified ITS regions is now possible and yields detailed information of relationships within the genus as well as allowing the design of species-specific PCR primers for diagnostic purposes.
Characterization of Alder Phytophthora Isolates from Wallonia and Development of SCAR Primers for their Specific Detection
TLDR
A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using sequence-characterized amplification region (SCAR) primers derived from a polymorphic amplification product generated with a RAPD primer was developed for the specific detection of alder Phytophthora.
Natural Hybrids of Phytophthora nicotianae and Phytophthora cactorum Demonstrated by Isozyme Analysis and Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA.
TLDR
It is concluded that the three Phytophthora sp-h isolates represent interspecific hybrids, P. nicotianae being the one parent and P. cactorum the other.
Comparative aggressiveness of standard and variant hybrid alder phytophthoras, Phytophthora cambivora and other Phytophthora species on bark of Alnus, Quercus and other woody hosts
TLDR
The standard hybrid was nonpathogenic to the bark of four other hardwood and two conifer species, indicating that it is relatively host specific, and P. cambivora was an aggressive pathogen on live bark of Quercus and Castanea.
Identification of Phytophthora species on the basis of restriction enzyme fragment analysis of the internal transcribed spacer regions of ribosomal RNA
TLDR
The utility of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions of the subunit which encodes ribosomal RNA will be discussed and the database of AFLP fingerprints developed in Plant Research International is discussed in this context.
