Research interests

  • Molecular aspects of host plant-pathogen interactions (Phytophthora  –  Quercus), non-host plant-pathogen (Phytophthora – Phlomis purpurea) and host plant-pathogen-mycorrhiza  (Phytophthora - Quercus - Pisolithus).

  • Genomic basis of aggressiveness and invasiveness of Phytophthora spp. and of susceptibility and resistance of tree species.

  • Effects of compost and mycorrhizas on the relation Phytophthora - Quercus.

  • Epidemiology of diseases caused by Phytophthora spp. in natural ecosystems.

  • Detection and description of new Phytophthora spp. in Europe and other continents; assessment of their potential host ranges among European tree species.
