Here's your News Capsule
for July 11, 2019
|Are you looking for more interaction with poster content? Will you miss out on a poster you were hoping to see? For the first time at an APS Annual Meeting, poster presentations will be available for reference in electronic format on the meeting app and in the Plant Health Hub. If your abstract was accepted as a poster for Plant Health 2019, watch for e-poster upload instructions to arrive in the near future!
Gall-forming insects must both enter the plant and induce development of a gall. How? Body and colleagues profile 15 hormones in 5 Populus angustifolia genotypes to show strong heritability and interaction of phytohormone profiles and resistance/susceptibility. Their findings suggest that gall formation is likely caused by a balance between defense and development signaling.
Leaf rust is an economically important pathogen of barley. Priming a plant to induce systemic resistance may offer an alternative to enhance resistance against leaf rust in barley. Using the priming trigger N-acyl homoserine lactone (AHL), Wehner et al. found that diverse barley accessions showed a differentiated response in leaf rust resistance.
The APS News Capsule is a benefit of your APS membership.
Thank you for your continued support!
APS Membership Matters
"APS has provided me with a career rich in interactions. As a student, it was a place to grow, to meet other plant pathologists, and to build a network of colleagues—many of whom eventually became lifelong collaborators and friends. It was the disciplinary home within which I built my career, with a lot of help from the society. It’s a place where any member can make a difference."
