Feature Story
October 1 through October 31, 2001 What are the Nonindigenous Plant Pathogens that Threaten U.S. Crops and Forests? L. V. Madden, Department of Plant Pathology, Ohio State University, Wooster, OH 44691 ( Background Fig. 1. Dark brown or reddish lesions of soybean rust (courtesy G. L. Hartman) (click image for larger view U.S. crops are susceptible to a large number of diseases caused by fungi, oomycetes, viruses, bacteria, phytoplasmas, and nematodes. Losses due to plant diseases have been estimated to be as high as $30 billion per year (20). Fortunately, not all pathogens of a given crop currently are present in the U.S. Perusal of any Compendium of Plant Disease published by the American Phytopathological Society (APS) will quickly show that there are several serious pathogens that have not yet arrived or have not become established in this country. Other important plant pathogens are found in only limited areas within the country, such that most of the crop is not affected. One example is soybean rust, caused by the fungus Phakopsora pachyrhizi (Figs. 1 and 2). Yield reductions of 10 to 30% on a regional basis are typical in areas where the Asiatic strain is found (27), and yield reductions of over 90% (relative to attainable yields) have been reported for individual fields (14,28). The pathogen has been in Puerto Rico for some time, but the strain is less aggressive than the Asiatic one. However, the Asiatic strain is now in South America.

Course Goals:
The primary goal is to study those interactions between higher plants, plant pathogens, and the environment which are important in the occurrence and development of plant disease. Emphasis is placed on the population dynamics and ecology of plant pathogens in the aerial and soil environments. Entry Level:
The course is designed primarily for graduate students in plant pathology and related fields. Plant pathology 120 or an equivalent course is a prerequisite. Any exposure the student has had to microbiology, mycology, ecology, population dynamics, soils, and atmospheric sciences will be helpful. However, no formal background in these areas is required. Course Format:
Three hours of lecture and one hour of discussion are scheduled each week. Some of the discussion is prepared and led by students. Grades are based on one mid-term exam, a final exam and one paper. The paper is written on the epidemiology of a disease of the student's choosing. The paper takes the form of a research proposal and the goal of the proposed research is to gather all the information needed to model and/or forecast epidemics at a given location.

Course Goals: To provide the student with concepts that form the basis for understanding the nature, cause, epidemiology, and control of plant diseases. The course emphasizes the ecological and biological aspects of pathogenic agents and their interactions with plants. The student will be introduced to all major types of plant pathogens. This is a basic course for students planning to take additional courses in plant pathology or plant biology, and serves as a breadth course for students whose primary interest lies in other areas of biology. Entry Level: Students are expected to be familiar with the principles and terminology of biology and with the morphology, anatomy, and physiology of plants. Their preparation should be no less than that obtained in Biological Sciences 1C. Course Format: Two lectures and two 3-hour laboratories per week. Lectures deal primarily with broad concepts and principles of plant pathology, pathogen biology and taxonomy, and contemporary topics related to plant-pathogen interactions. Laboratories cover specific types of plant diseases which are selected to illustrate all major groups of causal agents and types of disease and to provide students the opportunity to work with specific pathogens.

W hy preserve the biodiversity of plant pathogens? International Congress of Plant Pathology President David Ingram gives several reasons in his paper introduced below, including: 1) they serve a role in revealing genetic diversity in potential breeding material and provide vital screens for the development of new cultivars, 2) they are the raw material for much of the basic scientific research on life cycles and genetics that generate an understanding of pathogen variation, evolution and population dynamics, and 3) they constitute a potentially significant biotechnological resource of particular importance to the genetic engineer. Most plant pathologists are employed to control or eradicate plant diseases from crops in agriculture, horticulture or forestry. However, every plant species, wild or cultivated, has one or more plant diseases naturally associated with it. Plant diseases are a normal part of every natural and semi-natural community, but their impact and role in these communities is usually unnoticed and unappreciated. In cropping ecosystems (monocultures), plant diseases often cause visible death and destruction leading to yield loss. In natural ecosystems (biologically diverse), they are an "unseen" influence on both the plant community and the evolution of individual species.

Cathy Thomas, Integrated Pest Management Program, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Editors note: the following article was taken from the Vegetable and Small Fruit Gazette, November 2002 issue. The newsletter can be accessed on the web at: Diseases in greenhouse vegetables and floriculture crops can be managed effectively with biological fungicides (biofungicides). A biofungicide is composed of beneficial microorganisms, such as specialized fungi and bacteria that attack and control plant pathogens and the diseases they cause (USDA). These specialized fungi and bacteria are microorganisms that normally inhabit most soils. Biofungicides can be a viable alternative to chemical fungicides and can be used as part of an integrated disease management program to reduce the risk of pathogens developing resistance to traditional chemical based fungicides. An example of a widely used commercial biofungicide in the greenhouse industry is Trichoderma harzianum (TH) strain T-22 (PlantshieldÔ). TH protects plant roots from pathogens such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Sclerotinia, and Thielaviopsis. TH will also suppress foliar diseases such as Botrytis and powdery mildew.

Plants can suffer from bacterial, viral and fungal attack just as we can ourselves. The organisms themselves (pathogens) are different, but at the microbial level the infection is much the same since one cell is as good a host as another. No matter which part of the plant is attacked the effect is usually to weaken or kill it. By infecting the leaves the plant's ability to produce its food is reduced. Some pathogens block the vessels in the stems which supply the leaves and by attacking the roots, the uptake of water and nutrients is reduced or stopped completely. Sometimes the 'infection' is symbiotic where both organisms derive a benifit. A good example of this is the nitrogen fixing bacteria which reside in nodules on the roots of leguminous plants (the pea family), the plant provides food and protection, the bacteria takes nitrogen from the air and converts it to a form usable by the host.

Introduction to Plant Pathology
Plant pathology is the study of organisms and environmental factors that cause diseases in plants. The overall objective of this course is to introduce the students to the concept of plant health. Specific goals are: Develop a basic understanding of plant diseases, their cause and management; Develop an understanding of the basic biology of plant pathogens- i.e. how they cause disease, methods of spread and survival; Develop basic techniques necessary to work with plant pathogens in a laboratory setting; and Develop an understanding of the procedures involved in making a plant disease diagnosis.

Biological Control Of Plant Pathogens
A Note From the Project Director: In the May 1995 issue of MBCN we acknowledged that while weed and plant disease biological control are very important, our grant specifies a newsletter devoted to insect biological control. The feature article of that issue was an introduction to the biological control of weeds . In this issue, we are pleased to have an article by Dr. Jennifer Parke of the University of Wisconsin, Department of Plant Pathology, introducing the subject of biological control of plant diseases. Plant diseases are caused mainly by fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes. Biocontrol of plant disease involves the use of an organism or organisms to reduce disease. In this article, I will emphasize biocontrol of diseases caused by fungi and bacteria. Biocontrol includes management of resident populations of organisms (the 'black box' approach) and introductions of specific organisms (the 'silver bullet' approach) to reduce disease. The 'Black Box' Approach.
