The causal agent of tobacco anthracnose was identified as Colletotrichum destructivum based on the morphology of the fungus and a comparison of the sequence of the rDNA ITS with those of other Colletotrichum species. The infection process on tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum and N. benthamiana) was examined by light microscopy, which revealed that the pathogen acted as an intracellular hemibiotroph. Penetration occurred preferentially at the anticlinal walls of epidermal cells by an appressorium and… CONTINUE READING
