Maturation of perithecia and ascospores discharge in South American leaf blight of rubber tree
- BiologyEuropean Journal of Plant Pathology
The present study indicates that the ascospores are present on the leaves shortly after infection, ensuring the survival of the fungus during the dry season in the case of no defoliation of the rubber trees.
Breeding for disease resistance in Hevea spp. - status, potential threats, and possible strategies.
A multidisciplinary breeding program for development of disease resistant clones would have to continuously utilize Wickham resource as well as wild germplasm, in addition to other Hevea spp.
INVITED South American Leaf Blight of the Rubber Tree ( Hevea spp.): New Steps in Plant Domestication using Physiological Features and Molecular Markers
† Background Rubber trees ( Hevea spp.) are perennial crops of Amazonian origin that have been spread over the whole tropical belt to guarantee worldwide production of natural rubber. This crop plant…
Global Assessment of Climate-Driven Susceptibility to South American Leaf Blight of Rubber Using Emerging Hot Spot Analysis and Gridded Historical Daily Data
- Environmental ScienceForests
This study applies emerging hot spot analysis to three decades of gridded daily precipitation and surface relative humidity data to depict their temporal and geographical patterns in relation to the occurrence of weather conditions that may lead to the emergence of SALB.
