Evolution of Virulence in Eukaryotic Microbes offers a unique and up-to-date review of eukaryotic virulence in fungi, oomycetes, and protozoa parasites and how they affect both animals and plants.
Containing the active ingredient cyazofamid, RANMAN is active at all stages of the disease life cycle to protect against downy mildew, late blight and diseases caused by Oomycetes and Pythium in cucurbits, potatoes, brassicas, lettuce, carrots and other crops.
Organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants.
These are oomycetes, which cause blights in plants such as the Irish potato famine; protozoan parasites of humans, including Plasmodium, which causes malaria; and fungi that cause diseases in animals and plants.
Among them are Rhizoctonia fungi, Pythium oomycetes, and the parasitic nematode Pratylenchus penetrans.
Entries cover diseases of subterranean and aerial parts caused by fungi and oomycetes (such as Fusarium diseases, leaf blight, downy mildew, rust and smut), of bulbs caused by fungi (black or blue mold, mushy rot and smudge), and those caused by bacteria and yeast (sour skin, center rot, yeast soft rot), nematodes (needle and sting nematodes), viruses and phytoplasmas(garlic mosaic, iris yellow spot), and parasitic flowering plants (dodder).
