Combining different potato-associated pseudomonas strains for improved biocontrol of Phytophthora infestans

Vrieze, Mout De ; Germanier, Fanny ; Vuille, Nicolas ; Weisskopf, Laure

In: Frontiers in Microbiology, 2018, vol. 9, p. -

Late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans is considered as the most devastating disease of potato and is a re-emerging problem worldwide. Current late blight control practices rely mostly on synthetic fungicides or copper-based products, but growing awareness of the negative impact of these compounds on the environment has led to the search for alternative control measures. A collection of...

Pine stand density influences the regeneration of Acacia saligna (Labill.) H.L.Wendl. and native woody species in a mediterranean coastal pine plantation

Badalamenti, Emilio ; da Silveira Bueno, Rafael ; Campo, Olimpia ; Gallo, Martina ; La Mela Veca, Donato Salvatore ; Pasta, Salvatore ; Sala, Giovanna ; La Mantia, Tommaso

In: Forests, 2018, vol. 9, no. 6, p. 359

Mediterranean plantations are the most suitable areas to assess vegetation dynamics and competitive interactions between native and exotic woody species. Our research was carried out in a coastal pine plantation (Sicily) where renaturalization by native species (Pistacia lentiscus L. and Olea europaea var. sylvestris) and invasion by Acacia saligna (Labill.) H.L.Wendl. simultaneously occur....

Essl, Franz ; Bacher, Sven ; Genovesi, Piero ; Hulme, Philip E. ; Jeschke, Jonathan M. ; Katsanevakis, Stelios ; Kowarik, Ingo ; Kühn, Ingolf ; Pyšek, Petr ; Rabitsch, Wolfgang ; Schindler, Stefan ; Kleunen, Mark van ; Vilà, Montserrat ; Wilson, John R. U. ; Richardson, David M.

In: BioScience, 2018, vol. 68, no. 7, p. 496–509

Human activities such as the transport of species to new regions and modifications of the environment are increasingly reshaping the distribution of biota. Accordingly, developing robust, repeatable, and consistent definitions of alien species that serve scientific and policy purposes has become of prime importance. We provide a set of classification criteria that are widely applicable across...

Re-establishment of Protea repens after clearing invasive Acacia saligna: Consequences of soil legacy effects and a native nitrophilic weedy species

Nsikani, M.M. ; Wilgen, B.W. van ; Bacher, Sven ; Gaertnera, M.

In: South African Journal of Botany, 2018, vol. 116, p. 103–109

Invasive Australian acacias can alter soil chemistry and microbial communities in areas they invade. After clearing invasive acacias, these changes can persist, and previously invaded areas can become dominated by nitrophilic weedy species. Restoration of viable native plant communities in cleared sites often fails due to a lack of native species re-establishment. Therefore, to improve...

Nentwig, Wolfgang ; Bacher, Sven ; Kumschick, Sabrina ; Pyšek, Petr ; Vilà, Montserrat

In: Biological Invasions, 2018, vol. 20, no. 6, p. 1611–1621

“One hundred worst” lists of alien species of the greatest concern proved useful for raising awareness of the risks and impacts of biological invasions amongst the general public, politicians and stakeholders. All lists so far have been based on expert opinion and primarily aimed at representativeness of the taxonomic and habitat diversity rather than at quantifying the harm the alien...
