The knowledge of viruses in forest and urban trees develops rapidly. Regarding the last ten years, a remarkable number of new and previously known viruses have been discovered and described in widespread European urban and forest trees. However, so far, very little is generally known about these viruses compared to those affecting agricultural crop...

We report the complete nucleotide sequence of the genome of a novel virus in ringspot-diseased common oak ( Quercus robur L.). The newly identified pathogen is associated with leaf symptoms such as mottle, chlorotic spots and ringspots on diseased trees. High-throughput sequencing (HTS, Illumina RNASeq) was used to explore the virome of a ringspot-...

We observed the health status of oak trees in a conservation seed orchard for over twenty years, focusing on characteristic virus-suspected symptoms. The orchard was established in 1992 in Kreuztal, North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) with 1302 seedlings in 186 clusters. The number of seedlings showing chlorotic ringspots and mottle on leaves has fluc...

en Synchytrium endobioticum is one of the most important pathogens of potato and is known for its persistent propagation structures. Under favourable conditions, infection of highly susceptible potato cultivars leads to clearly visible cauliflower‐like tissue warts, the typical symptom of potato wart disease. However, unfavourable infection conditi...

Since the late 1990s virus suspected symptoms have been observed in birch trees (Betula spp.) in the Berlin area of Steglitz/Zehlendorf. Those roadside trees show degeneration and the viral symptoms chlorosies and necrosis in leaves. Ob- vious symptomatic leaf material from 73 roadside trees was collected in the vegetation period from May to July 2...

Plant viruses are small sized plant pathogens. They are obligate parasites and among the major limiting factors to modern agriculture. The incidence of plant viruses has been shown in woody and herbaceous plants, soil and surface waters. Many of them have a wide host range and are characterized by efficient virus transmission . Since curative plant...

Plant viruses occur in herbaceous and woody plants worldwide such as in trees of forests and urban green and are known to cause severe yield losses. Visible symptoms of a virus infection comprise from chlorotic ringspots, mottling, necroses, deformation of leaves andsprouts. As a result plants suffer from a reduction of photosynthesis capacity, gro...
