Pinus spp. have a number of fungal endophytes of which the latent pathogen Diplodia pinea is a well-known example. In this study, 12 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were used to consider the origin of the southern hemisphere isolates and to evaluate genetic diversity and gene flow between populations of D. pinea. Three populations were isolated from Pinus sp. within the native range of the fungus in the northern hemisphere and three populations were isolated from P. radiata in the southern… CONTINUE READING
