Vote for your favorite plant pathogenic fungus

Molecular Plant Pathology (twitter: MPPjournal) is engaging the community to vote for their favorite plant pathogenic fungus. Below is info requesting your vote.

As a member of the MPP community we would like you to take part in a fun but informative vote.

We aim to publish a Review detailing the top 10 plant pathogenic fungi worldwide, and we need your help.

Please could you list 3 fungi you feel should be in the top 10.
There is no need to rank them. Please state after the name whether it is for
scientific impact (SI) or economic impact (EI).

An example might be…

Magnaporthe grisea (SI/EI)
Melampsora lini (SI)
Botrytis cinerea (EI)

We will rank all the entries to compile a list. We will then find authors to write a short piece (1/2 page or so) on each one, introducing the pathogen and explaining its importance. This Review will be published in MPP for people to use, comment upon and discuss.

We hope you will take part, it will only take a few seconds of your time.

Please send your vote to diane.hird[AT]bristol.ac.uk by 11th February at the latest.

Feel free to pass on this email to any colleagues or co-workers as the more votes we get the better. Many thanks

Best wishes
Diane
