Inheritance of foliar resistance to Phytophthora species in cacao (Theobroma cacao L.): can it be influenced by CSSV infection?

Abstract

Studies on quantitative genetics of foliar resistance to black pod disease in cacao could inadvertently use cocoa swollen shoot virus (CSSV) infected leaves which could bias the results especially in West Africa where the virus is prevalent. However, effects of CSSV on inheritance and heritability of foliar resistance to Phytophthora species is not known… (More)
