Although plant pathogens are often regarded as plant destroyers, many deploy a genetic program to maintain viability of their plant hosts during at least part of the infection cycle. This lifestyle is referred to as biotrophy (Spanu, 2012). The other end of the lifestyle spectrum is defined by pathogens that kill plant tissue (necrotrophy; Oliver & Ipcho, 2004). Some ‘hemi-biotrophic’ pathogens deploy both strategies sequentially, beginning with a biotrophic phase that enables the pathogen to… CONTINUE READING
