Expansion of genetic diversity in randomly mating founder populations of Alternaria brassicicola infecting Cakile maritima in Australia

Linde, Celeste; Liles, Jennifer A.; Thrall, P

Description

Founder populations of fungal plant pathogens are expected to have low levels of genetic diversity coupled with further genetic drift due to, e.g., limited host availability, which should result in additional population bottlenecks. This study used microsatellite markers in the interaction between Cakile maritima and the fungal pathogen Alternaria brassicicola to explore genetic expectations associated with such situations. The host, C. maritima, was introduced into Australia approximately 100...[Show more]
