Fungi and plant diseases in relation to biogeography

, : Fungi and plant diseases in relation to biogeography. Transactions of the New York Academy of Sciences 20(4): 333-339

A biogeographical analysis of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum demonstrates that fungi causing plant diseases are subject to the same biogeographical factors dominating higher plants. When applied to fungi, this method of approach may be called "mycogeography", but when applied to plant diseases, "phytopatho-geography". The phytopathogeographical method results in the determination of the ecological character of the pathogen, and thus makes it possible to predict its appearance and perhaps prevent the disease. In determining the pathogenetic centers of the pathogen, resistant varieties of the host and organisms antagonistic to the pathogen may be discovered.

Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) fruit ripening is associated with a marked loss of firm texture, and endo-beta-(1,4)-glucanases (EGases: EC are believed to contribute to this loss process. To study the role of the previously descri...
