The Aerobiology and Population Genetic Structure of Gibberella zeae

D. G. Schmale III, and G. C. Bergstrom

July 2007

Review

Gibberella zeae causes Fusarium head blight (FHB) of wheat and barley and Gibberella ear rot (GER) of corn. Ascospores of G. zeae rely on atmospheric motion systems for transport to susceptible host plants. A long term objective of our research is to determine where inoculum for FHB and GER comes from and how far it travels.
