Sources and patterns of diversity in plant-pathogenic fungi.

Plant-pathogenic fungi include a very large and heterogeneous group of organisms that occupy positions of great importance in both agriculture and natural plant communities. They show an enormous diversity in life-history strategies and the ways in which they interact with their hosts. These interactions range from species that establish perennial, systemic infections that castrate their hosts to pathogens that kill their hosts with considerable rapidity to pathogens that form discrete lesions… CONTINUE READING
