P. T. N. SPENCER-PHILLIPS Co-ordinator, Downy mold operating staff of the foreign Society for Plant Pathology college of the West of britain, Coldharbour Lane, Bristol BS16 1QY, united kingdom electronic mail: it's a very nice privilege to put in writing the preface to the 1st professional publication on downy mildews because the significant paintings edited by way of D. M. Spencer in 1981. the assumption for the current ebook arose from the Downy mould Workshop on the overseas Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP) held in Edinburgh in August 1998. Our purpose used to be to ask studies on chosen features of downy mold biology from foreign experts, and hyperlink those to a sequence of similar brief contributions reporting new information. No try out has been made to hide the breadth of downy mould learn, yet we are hoping that extra subject matters can be incorporated in destiny volumes, in order that this turns into the 1st of a chain following the 5 12 months ICPP cycle.

Several species are apparently more frequently recognized in particular regions of the world, such as India (Ph. arecae [II]; Ph. cajani [VI]; Ph. cypari-bulbosi [III]); south-east Asia (Ph. colocasiae [IV], Ph. richardiae [VI]); Australasia (Ph. fragariae [V]; Ph. idaei [I]; Ph. erythroseptica [VI]). , Solanales: Ph. infestans), or a genus, such as Ph. inflata [III] on Ulmus in North America; Ph. quininea [V] on Chinchona in north-western South America; Ph. colocasiae [IV] on Colocasia esculenta, or even a part of a plant, such as Ph.

The water regime would appear to be of minor significance. Consider the sugar cane, Saccharum; cereal grasses such as Sorghum and Pennisetum (Pearl Millet); and grasses with essential oils such as Cymbopogon (Lemon Grass). The subfamily is also noted for its flavonoids which are, uniquely, sulphated. Thus, while the type of the Sclerosporales is Sclerospora graminicola, described from Setaria from Europe, this is still within the bounds of a coevolutionary development and ancestry located on the South East Asia plate.

This amalgamation may be an important consideration with respect to the evaluation of the evolution of the panicoid grasses, referred to below. P. ) are now available. During this period there was the break-up of the southern hemisphere super-continent, Gondwanaland, into South American, African, Indian, Australasian and Antarctic plates, but very little mountain orogeny was involved. In contrast, in the northern hemisphere there were numerous barriers to plant dispersal. The changing plates of North America plus Laurentia (Greenland and northern Europe) gave rise to Laurasia (North America plus Europe); Angaraland (the continent east of the Urals), East Asia (Siberia) and South East Asia.
