Description

Rust fungi (Uredinales), consisting of more than 7,000 species, is a highly host-specialized group of fungi.  Many of these 7,000 species are pathogens of field crops and forest trees and poses a threat to global food security and reforestation.  The rust pathogens are some of the most fascinating ones with complex life cycle consisting of multiple spore stages on more than single host species (majority) for completion of their life cycle.

The technologies and tools to study the rust pathogens as well as their hosts have rapidly evolved over last decade.  Researchers have made significant progress in the management of rust diseases by studying pathogen (population genetics and genomics, virulence phenotypes, pathogen global movement/incursions to new territories), hosts (genetics of rust resistance, resistance mechanisms), host-pathogen interactions, and agronomic approaches in field crops (fungicidal management, integration of host resistance and fungicides, timing of fungicide application).  These research findings provided variety of solutions to mitigate the losses incurred from the rust diseases.

If you are conducting research in the areas and would like to consider submitting your paper to the Canadian Journal of Plant Pathology, we encourage you to contact one of the Editors for the issue.  All submissions for this focus issue should advance or add onto the knowledge in aforementioned areas of rust diseases’ research.
