Molecular evidence supports hypervariability in Phytophthora colocasiae associated with leaf blight of taro


The oomycete Phytophthora colocasiae that causes taro leaf blight is the most devastating disease of taro and is widely distributed worldwide. Molecular and phenotypic techniques were employed for assessing and exploiting the genetic variability among four populations of P. colocasiae obtained from a fine spatial scale (multiple leaf blight lesions on… (More)
