Official scientific report of Myrtle rust in Africa
A few weeks ago we reported the first observation of Myrtle rust in Africa, where it occurred on an ornamental Myrtus communis
in KwaZulu-Natal. This is the rust that also poses a potential threat
to other members of the Myrtaceae such as Eucalyptus and Syzigium.
Attached is the official scientific report that was published last week
in IMA Fungus, the official journal of the International Mycological
Association. This paper should be used for citation purposes in reports
and articles, rather than our first report on treehealthnet.
