Plant pathogenic fungi and fungal-like organisms

The cells are arranged in filaments or hyphae and cause fungal diseases of major importance for most cultivated crops. Most species are saphrophytic and can be grown in artificial cutures. The transmission may occur through the seeds, through the air and soil, or, less often, through insects. Many species have teleomorphic (sexual) as well as anamorphic (asexual) forms.
