Italy rebuked for failure to prevent olive-tree tragedy

Nature, Vol. 546, No. 7657. (7 June 2017), pp. 193-194,


European Commission reveals widespread delays by the country’s authorities to halt spread of deadly plant disease. [Excerpt] A vicious pathogen that is destroying historic olive groves in Puglia, southern Italy, is marching north and threatens to reach the rest of Europe. Yet Italian authorities last year failed to track the infection’s spread, and didn’t follow containment plans agreed with the European Commission, according to an audit released last week by the commission. [...] The pathogen — for which there is no cure ...


Network analysis reveals why Xylella fastidiosa will persist in Europe

Scientific Reports, Vol. 7, No. 1. (6 March 2017),


The insect vector borne bacterium Xylella fastidiosa was first detected in olive trees in Southern Italy in 2013, and identified as the main culprit behind the ‘olive quick decline syndrome’. Since then, the disease has spread rapidly through Italy’s main olive oil producing region. The epidemiology of the outbreak is largely unstudied, with the list of X. fastidiosa hosts and vectors in Europe likely incomplete, and the role humans play in dispersal unknown. These knowledge gaps have led to management strategies ...


Can Apulia's olive trees be saved?

Science, Vol. 353, No. 6297. (2016), pp. 346-348,


On 21 October 2013, the Italian phytosanitary service notified the European Commission (EC) that the plant pathogen Xylella fastidiosa had been detected in olive trees near Gallipoli, a tourist destination in Italy's southern region of Apulia (1). This xylem-limited bacterium is spread by insect vectors and causes disease in crops such as grapevines, citrus, coffee, and almond; various ornamentals; and trees such as oaks, elms, and sycamores. Because of the risks of X. fastidiosa being introduced, established, and spread throughout Europe, ...

Fine-scale ecological and economic assessment of climate change on olive in the Mediterranean Basin reveals winners and losers

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 15. (15 April 2014), pp. 5598-5603,


[Significance] Inability to determine reliably the direction and magnitude of change in natural and agro-ecosystems due to climate change poses considerable challenge to their management. Olive is an ancient ubiquitous crop having considerable ecological and socioeconomic importance in the Mediterranean Basin. We assess the ecological and economic impact of projected 1.8 °C climate warming on olive and its obligate pest, the olive fly. This level of climate warming will have varying impact on olive yield and fly infestation levels across the Mediterranean ...

The olive quick decline syndrome in south-east Italy: a threatening phytosanitary emergency

European Journal of Plant Pathology (2015), pp. 1-9,


The olive quick decline syndrome (OQDS) is a disease that appeared suddenly a few years ago in the province of Lecce (Salento peninsula, southeastern Italy). Among the factors that may be involved in its aetiology, the most relevant is Xylella fastidiosa, a quarantine pathogen of American origin, whose presence in Italy represents its first confirmed record in the European Union. X. fastidiosa is a Gram-negative bacterium that invades the xylem of a wide range of hosts, from which it is acquired ...


New hosts of Xylella fastidiosa strain CoDiRO in Apulia

Journal of Plant Pathology, Vol. 96, No. 3. (2014)


In the course of surveys carried out in June 2014 in the Salento (Apulia, southern Italy) area affected by an epidemic of a strain of Xylella fastidiosa subsp. pauca (Cariddi et al., 2014) denoted CoDiRO (abbreviation from the Italian name “Complesso del Disseccamento Rapido dell’Olivo”), the fol - lowing symptomatic plants were observed: (i) cherry ( Prunus avium ), 13 trees showing scanty vegetation and bud failure, but no leaf scorching; ...


Reviving extinct Mediterranean forest communities may improve ecosystem potential in a warmer future

Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Vol. 13, No. 7. (2015), pp. 356-362,


The Mediterranean Basin is the region of Europe most vulnerable to negative climate-change impacts, including forest decline, increased wildfire, and biodiversity loss. Because humans have affected Mediterranean ecosystems for millennia, it is unclear whether the region’s native ecosystems were more resilient to climate change than current ecosystems, and whether they would provide sustainable management options if restored. We simulated vegetation with the LANDCLIM model, using present-day climate as well as future climate-change scenarios, in three representative areas that encompass a broad ...


Olea europaea

In Enzyklopädie der Holzgewächse: Handbuch und Atlas der Dendrologie (1999)


Der Ölbaum gehört zu den ältesten Kulturpflanzen der Menschheit und seine Plantagen prägen noch heute das Bild und die Wirtschaft des Mittelmeerraumes. Jährlich werden hier fast 1,8 Millionen Tonnen Olivenöl produziert. Hinzu kommen - besonders in jüngster Zeit - die sogenannten Speiseoliven. Der Habitus des xeromorphen, sehr knorrigen, immergrünen Baumes wird zum Teil durch die am Stammfuß gebildeten Auswüchse (Ovoli) bestimmt. Sie treiben nach Rückschnitt oder Verletzung in Form von Schößlingen aus, so dass es zu strauchartigen Wuchsformen kommt. Olea europaea ...


Italian scientists vilified in wake of olive-tree deaths



[Excerpt] [...] plant scientists at various institutes in Bari, the capital of the Puglia region, [southern Italy, ...] have been subject to a police investigation about whether they are responsible for the introduction of the bacterium, Xylella fastidiosa, into Puglia, or for allowing its subsequent spread. Police have called in several researchers involved in Xylella research for questioning and confiscated computers and documents from scientific institutes. “We’d just like to be left to do our work without this suspicion and this ...

Effect of long-term olive oil dietary intervention on postprandial triacylglycerol and factor VII metabolism

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 68, No. 3. (1998), pp. 552-560


Although the beneficial effects of Mediterranean-type diets, which are rich in olive oil, a good source of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), are generally accepted, little is known about the effects of long-term dietary MUFA intake on postprandial lipoprotein metabolism and hemostasis. This study used a single-blind, randomized, crossover design to investigate the relative effects of a long-term dietary olive oil intervention and a control [saturated fatty acid (SFA)-enriched] diet on postprandial triacylglycerol metabolism and factor VII activity. The postprandial response to ...


Beneficial properties of olive oil

Food Research International, Vol. 33, No. 3-4. (April 2000), pp. 227-231,


The Mediterranean diet is reputed to account for the lower incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) in southern Europe. Olive oil is the principal source of fat in the Mediterranean diet, therefore the southern European diet contains more monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and less saturated fatty acids (SFA), compared to the Northern European diet. Atherosclerosis and thrombosis are the two key pathophysiological processes which lead to the development of CHD. Therefore, the aim of the EU project entitled “The Beneficial Properties ...


The origins of the domestication of the olive tree

Comptes Rendus Biologies, Vol. 332, No. 12. (05 December 2009), pp. 1059-1064,


The present diversity of the olive (crop) and oleaster (wild) tree was investigated with nuclear and cytoplasm markers. Patterns of diversity of the wild form inferred eleven ancestral populations in the East and the West of the Mediterranean basin. Patterns of diversity for cultivars are less clear, but we showed that cultivars admixed to nine groups that corresponded to oleaster ancestral populations. We inferred that nine domestication events took place in the olive, but these origins were blurred by gene flow ...

Spilocaea oleagina in Olive Groves of Southern Spain: Survival, Inoculum Production, and Dispersal

Plant Disease, Vol. 97, No. 12. (December 2013), pp. 1549-1556,


Olive scab caused by the mitosporic fungus Spilocaea oleagina is the most important foliar disease of olive. Limited information is available on pathogen survival and disease epidemiology; however, this information is essential for development of new control strategies. Pathogen survival and inoculum production on infected olive leaves and conidial dispersal were evaluated during 4 years in an olive orchard of the susceptible ‘Picual’ in southern Spain. Infected leaves in the tree canopy were important for pathogen survival and conidia production. The ...


Feral olives (Olea europaea) as future woody weeds in Australia: a review

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 40, No. 6. (2000), pp. 889-901


Olives (Olea europaea ssp. europaea), dispersed from 19th century orchards in the Adelaide area, have become established in remnant bushland as a major environmental weed. Recent expansion of the Australian olive industry has resulted in the widespread planting of olive orchards in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia, Queensland and parts of Tasmania. This paper reviews the literature on the activity of vertebrate (principally avian) olive predators and their potential as vectors for spreading this plant into Australian remnant ...

Verticillium wilt of olive and its control: The heat is on

Plant and Soil In Plant and Soil, Vol. 355, No. 1-2. (30 December 2012), pp. 17-21,


Plant and Soil recently published a comprehensive and critical Marschner review about Verticillium wilt (López-Escudero and Mercado-Blanco 2011), one of the most threatening biotic constraints for olive (Olea europaea L.) production. The authors reviewed research efforts aimed to understand the diversity of the causal agent (the soil-borne fungus Verticillium dahliae), the mechanisms underlying the interaction between the host plant and the pathogen, and the range of factors contributing to this disease becoming a major phytopathological problem in many traditional olive-growing areas. ...


Spread of levan-positive populations of Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi, the causal agent of olive knot, in central Italy

European Journal of Plant Pathology In European Journal of Plant Pathology, Vol. 112, No. 2. (June 2005), pp. 101-112,


Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi, the causal agent of olive knot disease, has for a long time been included in subgroup 1b of phytopathogenic, fluorescent Pseudomonas species by the LOPAT determinative tests (production of levan, oxidase, pectinolytic and arginine dihydrolase activity, tobacco hypersensitivity). Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi differs from the Pseudomonads in subgroup 1a only in being levan-negative. However, in 1990, during a survey on the spread of olive knot in Tuscany, levan-positive isolates of P. savastanoi pv. savastanoi were isolated from ...

Origin and History of the Olive

In Olive Germplasm - The Olive Cultivation, Table Olive and Olive Oil Industry in Italy (05 December 2012),


To begin, the methodology followed to reconstruct the origin and history of the olive is presented. The genetic structure (density of alleles across the geographic distribution of individuals) based on allele frequencies of the present oleaster tree in the Mediterranean Basin computed with different methods of comparison with the genetic structure of cultivars grouped based on their geographic and genetic origins infers several possible scenarios for the transition from the oleaster to the olive. To screen among the scenarios requires solid ...


Classification, origin, diffusion and history of the olive



Today the olive is grown in areas with a Mediterranean climate and is, in many cases, of interest in countries that do not have strong economies and whose scientific activity and influence is thus limited. As a result, despite the fact that the plant has been the object of studies over millennia, there are still many aspects of its development that have not been sufficiently explored, and these include the distribution of the species and its taxonomy. This document presents a ...


Has Xylella fastidiosa “chosen” olive trees to establish in the Mediterranean basin?

Phytopathologia Mediterranea, Vol. 52, No. 3. (2013), pp. 541-544,


Severe decline of olive trees was observed in the Lecce province, Apulia (Italy), and received the name ‘complesso del disseccamento rapido dell’olivo’ (olive rapid decline complex). Affected plants showed leaf scorch symptoms and dieback of twigs, branches and even of the whole plant. Similar symptoms, unusual for the area, have also been observed in other Apulian localities (Cerignola, Foggia, Canosa di Puglia, and Andria). Three fungal species were associated with the symptoms: Phaeoacremonium aleophilum, Neofusicoccum parvum, and Pleurostomophora richardsiae. The latter ...

Abstract Most atmospheric scientists agree that climate changes are going to increase the mean temperature in Europe with increased frequency of climatic extremes, such as drought, floods, and storms. Under such conditions, there is high probability that forests will be subject to increased frequency and intensity of stress due to climatic extremes. Therefore, impacts of climate change on forest health should be carefully evaluated. Given these assumptions, several fungal diseases on trees may become more devastating because of the following factors: ...


Scientific Opinion on the risks to plant health posed by Xylella fastidiosa in the EU territory, with the identification and evaluation of risk reduction options

EFSA Journal, Vol. 13, No. 1. (January 2015), 3989,


[Abstract] The EFSA Panel on Plant Health conducted a pest risk assessment and an evaluation of risk reduction options for Xylella fastidiosa. X. fastidiosa has been detected in olive in the EU with a distribution restricted to the region of Apulia in Italy and is under official control. X. fastidiosa has a very broad host range, including many common cultivated and wild plants. All xylem fluid-feeding insects in Europe are considered to be potential vectors. Philaenus spumarius (Hemiptera: Aphrophoridae), a polyphagous ...


Wildfires and landscape patterns in the Eastern Iberian peninsula

Landscape Ecology, Vol. 17, No. 8. (2002), pp. 745-759,


The relations between disturbance regime and landscape patterns have been developed from a theoretical perspective, but few studies have tested these relations when forces promoting opposing heterogeneity patterns are simultaneously operating on a landscape. This work provides quantitative evidence of these relations in areas dominated by human activity, showing that landscape heterogeneity decreases disturbance spread. In turn, disturbance introduces a source of landscape heterogeneity, but it is not enough to counterbalance the homogeneity trend due to agricultural abandonment. Land cover changes ...


On the origin of the invasive olives (Olea europaea L., Oleaceae)

Heredity, Vol. 99, No. 6. (08 August 2007), pp. 608-619,


The olive tree (Olea europaea) has successfully invaded several regions in Australia and Pacific islands. Two olive subspecies (subspp. europaea and cuspidata) were first introduced in these areas during the nineteenth century. In the present study, we determine the origin of invasive olives and investigate the importance of historical effects on the genetic diversity of populations. Four invasive populations from Australia and Hawaii were characterized using eight nuclear DNA microsatellites, plastid DNA markers as well as ITS-1 sequences. Based on these ...


Reproduction of olive tree habitat suitability for global change impact assessment

Ecological Modelling, Vol. 218, No. 1-2. (October 2008), pp. 95-109,


The olive tree is so typical of the Mediterranean climate that its presence in a territory qualifies the climate of this as Mediterranean. Many clues indicated that in the past olive cultivation limits moved northward or southward in the Northern Hemisphere according to warmer or cooler climate, respectively. This makes the olive tree cultivation area a possible biological indicator of changes in climate and the identification of the climatological parameters that limit its cultivation plays an important role for climate change ...


Heat requirement for the onset of the Olea europaea L. pollen season in several sites in Andalusia and the effect of the expected future climate change

International Journal of Biometeorology In International Journal of Biometeorology, Vol. 49, No. 3. (2005), pp. 184-188,


Olives are one of the largest crops in the Mediterranean region, especially in Andalusia, in southern Spain. A thermal model has been developed for forecasting the start of the olive tree pollen season at five localities in Andalusia: Cordoba, Priego, Jaen, Granada and Malaga using airborne pollen and meteorological data from 1982 to 2001. Threshold temperatures varied between 5°C and 12.5°C depending on bio-geographical characteristics. The external validity of the results was tested using the data for the year 2002 as ...


The beginning of olive (olea europaea) cultivation in the old world: A reassessment

Journal of Archaeological Science, Vol. 18, No. 4. (July 1991), pp. 441-453,


The olive was one of the first fruit trees cultivated by man. It has been claimed that cultivation of the olive began in Israel during the Chalcolithic Period. Careful botanical examination of pollen grains, stones and wood remains gathered from living trees and from archaeological contexts show that it is impossible to distinguish between wild and cultivated olives. The ample remnants of olive found in archaeological contexts, together with other finds, such as pottery vessels, oil lamps, and olive oil installations, ...
