The necrotrophic fungal pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum causes the economically damaging Sclerotinia Stem Rot (SSR) of chickpea. This thesis describes the first report of partial resistance in wild and Australian chickpea germplasm. The quantitative trait loci responsible for resistance, key factors the pathogen employ during infection and chickpea resistance responses are reported. Together, this thesis provides an insight into the chickpea-sclerotinia interaction and is a noble resource in developing SSR control strategies

Lesion and sclerotia development in four pulse species when inoculated with different isolates of Sclerotinia sclerotiorumLamont, Grace Elizabeth; Bennett, Sarita (2019)The fungal pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum has the potential to affect pulse crops as well as canola. Pulse crops are important break crops in cereal cropping systems, but rotations may need to be managed when canola ...
