Bacteria (plant diseases)
Bacteria are small (typically up to 2 µm), single-celled organisms without nucleus but with a cell wall. Many species are mobile by using flagellae. Plant pathogenic species do not form spores and live saphrophytically in the plant host without invading the cells. However, they often produce enzymes which break down the cell wall of the host plant.
