Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper deals with a comparative study of Fusarium head blight (FHB) pathogens including Fusarium graminearum (FG) and F. pseudograminearum (FP) from Australia and the USA using aggressiveness, mycotoxin production and genotypic diversity based
on amplified fragment length polymorphism. In addition, it examines phylogenetic relationships within FP using genealogical analysis of four nuclear genes. Both Australian FG and FP are genetically diverse, although perithecia are rarely seen in nature in the
heterothallic teleomorph of FP. Both species produced mycotoxins in grain cultures and caused FHB in infection assays. Although toxin levels and FHB severity varied with the isolate, there was no association between these two traits. A multi-locus sequence analysis of FP isolates from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Turkey and the USA differentiated this species into four well-supported clades, but these were not linked to their geographic origin. The paper stresses the importance of international collaboration in sharing information, tools, and resources in making research outputs applicable to wide geographical regions.
