The nutrient supply of pathogenic fungi: a fertile field for study

Solomon, Peter; Tan, Kar-Chun; Oliver, Richard Peter

Description

Phytopathogenic fungi must feed on their hosts to propagate and cause disease. Their ability to access the rich nutrient supply offered by living plants is one of the most obvious properties that distinguish pathogens from saprophytes. Successful invasion by pathogens depends as much on their ability to utilize the available nutrient sources offered by plants as on their ability to penetrate plants and evade defensive mechanisms. Here, we review current knowledge on the nature of the nutrient...[Show more]
