Abstract Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Panel on Plant Health performed a pest categorisation of Gymnosporangium spp. (non‐EU), a well‐defined and distinguishable group of fungal plant pathogens of the family Pucciniaceae affecting woody species. Many different Gymnosporangium species are recognised, of which at least 14 species are considered not to be native in the European Union. All the non‐EU Gymnosporangium species are not known to be present in the EU and are… Expand

Taking into consideration their prevalence, food group, daily intake, sampling, analytical techniques and consumer type’s regulatory limit, promising prevention mechanisms discovered are discovered. Expand


Gymnosporangium Species – An Important Issue of Plant Protection
Abstract Rusts (Fungi, Basidiomycota, Pucciniomycotina, Pucciniomycetes, Pucciniales) are one of the most important causal agents of diseases and they are infecting many plants including cereals andExpand
Inferring phylogeny and speciation of Gymnosporangium species, and their coevolution with host plants
It is clarified that the aecial hosts played more important roles than telial hosts in the speciation of Gymnosporangium species. Expand
Another gymnosporangial connection.
It was thought safe to conclude that the species of Gymnosporangium inhabited only hosts belonging to the families Juniperaceae and Malaceae, but aecial stages of three species are now known to be on hosts belong to the Rosaceae, Hydrangiaceae, and Myricaceae, respectively. Expand
The rust fungus Gymnosporangium in Korea including two new species, G. monticola and G. unicorne
Phylogenetic analyses show that species of Gymnosporangium form a monophyletic group with strong bootstrap support within the rust fungi, and phenotypic characters mapped onto the phylogenetic tree show that teliospore length followed by telia shape and telia length are conserved. Expand
Overview of the rust fungi (Uredinales) occurring on Rosaceae in Europe.
The rust fungi (Uredinales) occurring on members of the rose family (Rosaceae) in Europe are described with particular emphasis on their host range and distribution. Rusts have been reported on lessExpand
Gall production on hawthorns caused by Gymnosporangium spp. in Hatay province, Turkey
The nuclear ITS and LSU rDNA were sequenced for all three species of Gymnosporangium for use as a species barcode; sequences were deposited in GenBank, the first study to deposit sequence data from G. confusum to GenBank. Expand
Gymnosporangium sabinae and G. clavipes are the first Gymnosporangsium species reported to infect members of more than one genus of Cupressaceae, the pear-juniper rust. Expand
Fungi on Chamaecyparis Nootkatensis
Several potential pathogens were found in southeast Alaska; however, their low incidence or association with non-symptomatic tissues of Alaska-yellow cedar suggests that none is the primary cause of the extensive decline and mortality of this valuable tree species. Expand
First report on DMI fungicide resistance in Gymnosporangium asiaticum, the causal agent of Japanese pear rust, in Japan
Evaluated fungal populations from Fukuoka Prefecture for DMI fungicide sensitivity in vivo indicated the occurrence of Japanese pear rust resistant to D MI fungicides in Fukuoku Prefecture. Expand
Gymnosporangium Gaeumannii in North America
In 1966 Dr. Y. Hiratsuka and I collected near Banff, Alberta, what was thought to be telia of G. gaeumannii, which contained single-celled, multi-pored and pedicellate spores much like aeciospores of Gymnosporangium; however, because of the pedicels and lack of a peridium there is no doubt that they are urediniospores.
