There was thus no relationship between morphology of zoosporangia and sporangiophores and virulent characteristics for isolates identified in this study (Tables 2 and 4).
The proportion of zoosporangia of different forms and their sizes and the morphology of sporangiophores (Figure 3) do not appear to be useable to differentiate the virulent characteristics for isolates identified in this study (Tables 2 and 4).
