Yellow Rust epidemics worldwide were caused by Pathogen Races from divergent genetic lineages
(Frontiers Media, 2017)
We investigated whether the recent worldwide epidemics of wheat yellow rust were driven by races of few clonal lineage(s) or populations of divergent races. Race phenotyping of 887 genetically diverse Puccinia striiformis ...
International agricultural research tackling the effects of global and climate changes on plant diseases in the developing world
Climate change has a number of observed, anticipated, or possible consequences on crop health worldwide. Global change, on the other hand, incorporates a number of drivers of change, including global population increase, ...
Detection of wheat stem rust races TTHSK and PTKTK in the Ug99 race group in Kenya in 2014
(American Phytopathological Society, 2016)
Wheat stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, causes severe losses in wheat production under epidemic conditions. The detection of isolate Ug99 in east Africa (Pretorius et al. 2000) has raised global concerns ...
Spatial analysis to support geographic targeting of genotypes to environments
(Frontiers Media, 2013)
Crop improvement efforts have benefited greatly from advances in available data, computing technology, and methods for targeting genotypes to environments. These advances support the analysis of genotype by environment ...
Pathogenomic analysis of wheat yellow rust lineages detects seasonal variation and host specificity
(Oxford University Press, 2017)
Recent disease outbreaks caused by (re-)emerging plant pathogens have been associated with expansions in pathogen geographic distribution and increased virulence. For example, in the past two decades’ wheat yellow (stripe) ...
Distribution, frequency and occurrence of cereal nematodes on the Central Anatolian Plateau in Turkey and their relationship with soil physicochemical properties
The distribution of important plant-parasitic and free-living nematodes in the cereal production areas of the Central Anatolian Plateau (CAP) of Turkey was investigated with systematic surveys. Two important plant-parasitic ...
Assessing the vulnerability of traditional maize seed systems in Mexico to climate change
Climate change is predicted to have major impacts on small-scale farmers in Mexico whose livelihoods depend on rain-fed maize. We examined the capacity of traditional maize seed systems to provide these farmers with ...
