Populations of the ascomycete pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum sampled from a canola field were analysed using microsatellite markers. Fifty isolates were collected from ascospore-infested canola petals and, later in the season, another 55 isolates were obtained from stem lesions; these isolates were used to compare inoculum and disease-causing populations. Fifty-five unique haplotypes were identified, with gene diversity ranging from 0.40 to 0.71. Genotypic diversity was higher in the… CONTINUE READING
