CABI Book Chapter

Rust diseases of willow and poplar.

Book cover for Rust diseases of willow and poplar.


This book, which summarizes research progress on Melampsora rust on willows and poplars, is based mainly on papers presented at the "International Symposium on Melampsora on Salicaceae" held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on 11-13 September 2003. This book, intended for research workers, teachers and students, consists of 5 parts focusing on taxonomy and overview of rusts (part 1), occurrence and p...


Chapter 12 (Page no: 139)

Interactions between poplar clones and Melampsora populations and their implications for breeding for durable resistance.

This chapter covers the following: variability in virulence and pathotypes within Melampsora larici-populina on poplar; variability in the pathogenicity of M. larici-populina, M. allii-populina and M. medusae and its effects on host resistance; effects of the breakdown of complete resistance; adaptation of poplar cultivation to the evolution of pathotype populations; and evaluation of resistance in clones considering the diversity in virulence within M. allii-populina and M. larici-populina.
