The Dutch elm disease fungus Ophiostoma novo‐ulmi, which has destroyed billions of elm trees worldwide, originally invaded Europe as a series of clonal populations with a single mating type (MAT‐2) and a single vegetative incompatibility (vic) type. The populations then rapidly became diverse with the appearance of the MAT‐1 type and many vegetative incompatibility types. Here, we have investigated the mechanism using isolates from sites in Portugal at which the rapid evolution of O. novo‐ulmi… Expand
