Cover for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Phytophthora</i> species hybrids: a novel threat to crops and natural ecosystems.

There are now more than 100 species in the genus Phytophthora. Due to their rarity, atypical morphology or, conversely, morphology resembling an existing species, interspecific Phytophthora hybrids are difficult to detect. The artificially created hybrids through sexual crosses (P. mirabilis and P. ...
