Abstract

Nomenclatural revisions of plant pathogenic bacteria and list of names 1980-1988.

Abstract

Some changes are proposed to the International Standards for Naming Pathovars of Phytopathogenic Bacteria which were published 10 years ago. These changes bring attention to the pathotype strains that are known to require replacing and the names are listed of new species, subspecies and pathovars published during 1980-88, with comments on their validity.
