Cover for Plant resistance.

This chapter focuses on a few more extensively studied examples of resistance to phytoplasmal diseases: coconut lethal yellowing in the tropics and three major diseases of temperate fruit trees, namely apple proliferation (AP), pear decline (PD) and European stone fruit yellows (ESFY). AP and PD...

Cover for Phytoplasma epidemiological systems with multiple plant hosts.

This chapter deals with phytoplasmas using multiple plant hosts. The topic will be restricted to such phytoplasmas that regularly use more than one plant-vector system to exploit different ecological niches, and to examples where the specific host association of genetically diverse phytoplasma...

Cover for Transmission specificity and competition of multiple phytoplasmas in the insect vector.

Insect vectors can acquire more than one phytoplasma species/strain, either by feeding on multiple-infected source plants or by feeding sequentially on different plants infected by different phytoplasmas. The acquisition of multiple phytoplasmas leads to their interaction in the vector insects....

Cover for Current and possible future distributions of phytoplasma diseases and their vectors.

This chapter reviews the main phytoplasma taxonomic groups, and describes the main geographical areas and the crops that are affected. Effects of potential climate change (global warming) on the distribution of insect vectors (particularly Auchenorrhyncha) and incidence of phytoplasma diseases are...

Cover for Virus- and bacteria-transmitting arthropod vectors and their management.

This chapter explores arthropod vectors of plant pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Some of these vectors transmit viruses non-persistently, often by brief feeding probes lasting a few minutes or less. Other vectors transmit the virus semipersistently (over a few days) or persistently (for weeks or...
