Molecular and Chemical Mechanisms of Defence against Myrtle Rust in Australian Myrtaceae
Increased human disturbance to forest ecosystems has exacerbated the spread of fungal pathogens to non-native environments. Rust pathogens (Pucciniales) can spread long distances by human activity and wind dispersal, and can cause severe disease outbreaks in cereal crops and in forest trees. The exotic fungus Austropuccinia psidii (myrtle rust) arrived in Australia in 2010 and most species of native Myrtaceae including Eucalyptus and Melaleuca are susceptible...[Show more]
