First report of alder yellows phytoplasma infecting common and grey alder (Alnus glutinosa and A. incana) in Montenegro
Plant Disease 97 (5), 686-686
Abstract: During 2011, alder trees (Alnus glutinosa and A. incana) growing in Montenegro were observed with symptoms of leaf discoloration, ranging from yellow to light green. DNA was extracted from symptomatic plants and analyzed by PCR using phytoplasma specific primers. The presence of a phytoplasma was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants and the PCR product was cloned and sequenced. Sequence analysis showed the presence of a phytoplasma belonging to the 16SrV group.
