From observations of 5000 zoosporangia and sporangiophores, isolates showed different proportions of the oval form, zoosporangia size, and sporangiophores dimension (Table 3).
There was no relationship between morphology of zoosporangia and sporangiophores (Table 3) and virulent (Table 1) and aggressiveness characteristics (Table 2) for the races used in our study.
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).
Morphological characters of zoosporangia and sporangiophores obtained on sunflower genotype 'FU' for 35 isolates of Plasmopara halstedii.
After 13 days of infection of the sunflower inbred line 'FU', the zoosporangia and sporangiophores suspensions for 20 single zoosporangium isolates were obtained by grouping all sporulated cotyledons in a small container and adding 1 ml of physiological water for each cotyledon (9g NaCl+1L sterilized water).
Lycopersicon Non speptate mycelia Mucor Sp esculentum with branching sporangiophores; columella pyriform, ellipsoidal, pointed conical Lycopersicon Micro-conidia, ovoid to Fusarium esculentum ellipsoidal in shape are oxysporum borne on simple phialides.
Sporangia borne on sporangiophores: 0 = absent; 1 = present.
and also produces chlamydospores (chamydoconidia) in branched or un-branched chain 4 FGCC/BLS 7 Septate hyphae 5 FGCC/BLS 8 The sporangia are relatively small, globose, pyriform or pear-shaped and are supported by a characteristic funnel-shaped apophysisoften with a short projection at the top Sporangiophores are hyaline to faintly pigmented, simple or some-times branched, arising solitary from the stolons, in groups of three, or in whorls of up to seven.
