Homologous recombination and Xylella fastidiosa host-pathogen associations in South America

  
Phytopathology, Vol. 107, No. 3. (March 2017), pp. 305-312, https://doi.org/10.1094/phyto-09-16-0321-r

Abstract

Homologous recombination affects the evolution of bacteria such as Xylella fastidiosa, a naturally competent plant pathogen that requires insect vectors for dispersal. This bacterial species is taxonomically divided into subspecies, with phylogenetic clusters within subspecies that are host specific. One subspecies, pauca, is primarily limited to South America, with the exception of recently reported strains in Europe and Costa Rica. Despite the economic importance of X. fastidiosa subsp. pauca in South America, little is known about its genetic diversity. Multilocus sequence ...

 

Italy rebuked for failure to prevent olive-tree tragedy

  
Nature, Vol. 546, No. 7657. (7 June 2017), pp. 193-194, https://doi.org/10.1038/546193a

Abstract

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), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-017-00077-z

Abstract

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 ...

 

Update of a database of host plants of Xylella fastidiosa: 20 November 2015

  
EFSA Journal, Vol. 14, No. 2. (1 February 2016), pp. n/a-n/a, https://doi.org/10.2903/j.efsa.2016.4378

Abstract

Following a request from the European Commission, EFSA was tasked to periodically update its database of host plants of Xylella fastidiosa which was published in April 2015. An extensive literature search approach was used for updating the database in order to catch all new scientific developments published on the topic. Furthermore, the outputs of investigations conducted on host plants affected by X. fastidiosa in the Italian and French outbreaks were included. Literature screening and data extraction were performed using the Distiller ...

 

Can Apulia's olive trees be saved?

  
Science, Vol. 353, No. 6297. (2016), pp. 346-348, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aaf9710

Abstract

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, ...

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

  
European Journal of Plant Pathology (2015), pp. 1-9, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10658-015-0784-7

Abstract

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)

Abstract

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; ...

 

Response to scientific and technical information provided by an NGO on Xylella fastidiosa

  
EFSA Journal, Vol. 13, No. 4. (2015), 4082, https://doi.org/10.2903/j.efsa.2015.4082

Abstract

Following the publication of the Scientific Opinion by EFSA’s PLH Panel which assessed the risk to plant health posed by Xylella fastidiosa in the EU territory and evaluated risk reduction options, EFSA received a request for an urgent response to scientific and technical information provided by an Italian non-governmental organisation (NGO). The NGO claimed that X. fastidiosa is not the cause of olive tree decline in Lecce Province in Southern Italy, but only an endogenous element present in the trees that ...

 

Italian scientists vilified in wake of olive-tree deaths

  

Abstract

[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 ...

 

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

  
Phytopathologia Mediterranea, Vol. 52, No. 3. (2013), pp. 541-544, https://doi.org/10.14601/Phytopathol_Mediterr-13623

Abstract

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 ...

 

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, https://doi.org/10.2903/j.efsa.2015.3989

Abstract

[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 ...

 

First report of Xylella fastidiosa in the EPPO region

  
(2014)
by EPPO

Abstract

[Excerpt] In mid-October 2013, the NPPO of Italy informed the EPPO Secretariat of the first detection of Xylella fastidiosa (bacterium included on the EPPO A1 List since 1981) on its territory. In Southern Italy (near Lecce, Salento peninsula, Puglia region), quick decline symptoms were observed on olive trees (Olea europea). Investigations showed that symptomatic olive trees were generally affected by a complex of pests: X. fastidiosa, several fungal species belonging to the genus Phaeoacremonium and Phaemoniella, and Zeuzera pyrina (leopard ...
