Influence of atmospheric and climatic change on plant – pathogen interactions

  title={Influence of atmospheric and climatic change on plant – pathogen interactions},
  author={D. M. Eastburna and A. J. McElroneb and D. D. Bilginc},
Atmospheric change studies conducted in free air concentration enrichment (FACE) systems and open-topped chambers have increased understanding of how factors, such as rising CO2 and O3 levels, impact the development of plant disease epidemics. Using these systems, plant scientists have been able to study host ⁄pathogen systems under real-world conditions where variations in multiple environmental parameters impact disease outcomes. Results from these studies are useful for evaluating earlier…

Environment-Pathogen Interaction in Plant Diseases
nvironment is an important aspect of plant ecology and global environmental change is of major concern that is caused by natural and human activities which alter greenhouse gas concentrations in the

A crop disease is usually defined as abnormal growth and/or dysfunction of a plant. Diseases are the result of some disturbance in the normal life process of the crop plant. Crop diseases are
Climate Change Impacts on Plant Pathogens and Plant Diseases
Research is described on the effects of changes in temperature, CO2 and ozone concentrations, precipitation, and drought on the biology of pathogens and their ability to infect plants and survive in natural and agricultural environments.
Impacts of climate change on plant diseases—opinions and trends
This overview addresses the need for review of this burgeoning literature by summarizing opinions of previous reviews and trends in recent studies on the impacts of climate change on plant health, using Sudden Oak Death as an introductory case study.
Plant adaptation to climate change—opportunities and priorities in breeding
An essential priority entering into a ‘climate-changed’ era will be breeding for resistance or tolerance to the effects of existing and new pests and diseases, and research on the potential incidence and intensity of biotic stresses, and the opportunities for breeding solutions is essential to prioritise investment.
Scientific review of the impact of climate change on plant pests
Climate change represents an unprecedented challenge to the world?s biosphere and to the global community. It also represents a unique challenge for plant health. Human activities and increased
Plant pathogens, insect pests and weeds in a changing global climate: a review of approaches, challenges, research gaps, key studies and concepts
An overview on research approaches and challenges in climate change biology with respect to plant pathogens, insect pests and weeds is provided and the suggestions of researchers about how to conceptualize and prioritize future research strategies are summarized.
Migrate or evolve: options for plant pathogens under climate change
The review pinpoints improving confidence in model prediction by minimizing uncertainty, developing management strategies to reduce overall pathogen fitness, and finding new sources of data to trawl for climate signatures on pathogens as important challenges for future research.
Elevated ozone concentration and nitrogen addition increase poplar rust severity by shifting the phyllosphere microbial community
It is demonstrated that poplars need shifting phyllosphere microbial associations to optimize plant immunity in response to environmental changes and could be used to prescribe ecological information about poplar plantation in areas with high levels of ozone pollution and better understand the important roles of microbiome in plant heath.
Plant metabolomics for plant chemical responses to belowground community change by climate change
The effects of climate change are likely to alter both soil communities and plant metabolism, and it is equally probable that these changes will have cascading consequnces for grazers and subsequent food web components aboveground.


Climate change effects on plant disease: genomes to ecosystems.
Ecosystem ecologists are now addressing the role of plant disease in ecosystem processes and the challenge of scaling up from individual infection probabilities to epidemics and broader impacts.
Plant–pathogen interactions and elevated CO2: morphological changes in favour of pathogens
It is shown here that plant pathogen aggressiveness is increased under ECO2, together with changes in the leaf epidermal characteristics of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana L, which provides a positive feedback mechanism facilitating an enhanced susceptibility of newly developed leaves to further pathogen attack.
Elevated temperatures and carbon dioxide concentrations: effects on selected microbial activities in temperate agricultural soils
Human activities have increased greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. Research has demonstrated this increased concentration will affect our climate by causing increases in temperature and
Downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola) epidemics on grapevine under climate change
As climate is a key agro‐ecosystem driving force, climate change could have a severe impact on agriculture. Many assessments have been carried out to date on the possible effects of climate change
Elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide and ozone alter soybean diseases at SoyFACE
Human driven changes in the Earth's atmospheric composition are likely to alter plant disease in the future. We evaluated the effects of elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) and ozone (O3) on three
The current and future dynamics of disease in plant communities.
As human influence on pathogens increases--either directly through enhanced if accidental dispersal, or through anthropogenic impacts on climate--the authors may expect to see increasing evidence of pathogens affecting plant species, community structure, and ecosystem function.
Elevated CO2 reduces disease incidence and severity of a red maple fungal pathogen via changes in host physiology and leaf chemistry
A potential dual mechanism of reduced stomatal opening and altered leaf chemistry that results in reduced disease incidence and severity under elevated CO2 may be prevalent in many plant pathosystems where the pathogen targets the stomata.
How does elevated ozone impact soybean? A meta‐analysis of photosynthesis, growth and yield
The impact of ozone increased with developmental stage, with little effect on vegetative growth and the greatest effect evident at completion of seed filling, and Elevated carbon dioxide significantly decreased ozone-induced losses, which may be explained by a significant decrease in stomatal conductance.
