Soilborne ascospores and pycnidiospores of Leptosphaeria maculans can contribute significantly to blackleg disease epidemiology in oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in Western Australia
This is the first study to indicate a clear role for soilborne inoculum in the epidemiology of blackleg disease, and is further evidence that blackleg, at least in Australia, is a polycyclic disease.
Variation in abundance of predicted resistance genes in the Brassica oleracea pangenome
It is shown that the presence of RGA candidates differs between lines and suggests that in B. oleracea, SNPs and presence/absence variation drive RGA diversity using separate mechanisms.
A rapid and miniaturized system using Alamar blue to assess fungal spore viability: implications for biosecurity
The successful application of the Alamar Blue assay to measure fungal spore viability in the current study has important benefits for biosecurity operations relating to faster and more reliable confirmation of viability of potential invasive exotic fungal pathogens and in minimising any consequent disease outbreaks.
A bivariate mixed model approach for the analysis of plant survival data
The bivariate mixed model approach for the analysis of plant survival data provided a more detailed picture of the impact of disease resistance compared with the univariate analysis of percentage survival data and the predicted entry effects for survival were more accurate in the bivariate analysis.
Effect of temperature, cultivar and plant tissue on the germination of, and hyphal growth from, ascospores of Leptosphaeria maculans
Temperature, cultivar and plant tissue significantly affected germination of, and hyphal growth from, ascospores in the controlled-environment conditions.
Pathogenic variation of South Australian isolates of Leptosphaeria maculans and interactions with cultivars of canola (Brassica napus)
Early stages of infection, on the surface of leaves, through the epidermis and into the mesophyll, were examined histologically, using two canola cultivars (susceptible and resistant) and two isolates (virulent and avirulent).
Symptoms of blackleg (Leptosphaeria maculans) on the roots of canola in Australia
The occurrence of the blackleg fungus in the Roots of canola plants is confirmed, and its ability to infect through wounds in the roots is revealed, the first record of symptoms of blackleg on canola roots in Australia.
Leptosphaeria maculans causing stem canker of oilseed rape in China
In central China in April 1999, stem canker was found rarely but only the less aggressive, B-group was found, and cultural practices that result in the removal of most potential inoculum suggests whystem canker is not currently considered to be a problem in central China.
Histopathology of blackleg development in spring rapeseed.
Hyphae of Leptosphaeria maculans were observed in all types of above-ground tissue of two cultivars of Spring rapeseed plants exposed to natural infection and verified the extensive latent infection early in the season.
