Why Phytopathology?[edit]

In this section, the term "phytopathology" is the title, it is explained, and then it is largely not used again in the entire piece. It is something that is hard for the average person to understand, that is, jargon. It would make more sense to have a "Phytopathology" page that redirects to a "Plant Pathology" page. Phytopathology is really the more arcane term. Who makes the call on this? Dcooley52 (talk) 15:43, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Well I agree. If you want to change a page name and think it is contriversial, then you put your reasons on the talk page like you have and there is a consensus. However I don't see any reason why people would object to this move. We'll give it a day and see. Million_Moments (talk) 16:02, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Sections that need to be added[edit]

  • Diagnostics
  • Economic Importance
  • Disease Resistance
  • Plant Disease Control

Anymore? (Million_Moments 14:55, 20 April 2007 (UTC))

  • How plants respond to and cope with disease

This is a major issue! --EncycloPetey 21:50, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Why are these classafied under bacteria: 1.3.2 Viruses, viroids and virus-like organisms 1.3.3 Nematodes 1.3.4 Protozoa 1.3.5 Parasitic plants —Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.28.39.106 (talk) 22:22, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Is there something I'm not getting or is this a glaring mistake?

File:Rigidoporus laetus.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Rigidoporus laetus.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on July 20, 2010. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2010-07-20. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 22:58, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Picture of the day
Rigidoporus laetus

A specimen of Rigidoporus laetus, a fungal plant pathogen. Fungi reproduce both sexually and asexually via the production of spores. These spores may be spread long distances by air or water, or they may be soil-borne. Many soil-borne spores, normally zoospores and capable of living saprotrophically, carry out the first part of their life cycle in the soil. Fungal diseases can be controlled through the use of fungicides in agriculture, but new races of fungi often evolve that are resistant to various fungicides.
