implications in understanding fungal disease life cycles and control.
Species within a fungal division often have similar methods of spread,
and of survival. Their similarity of spore and hypha structure and of
biochemistry also means that they are often controlled by a common
fungicide active ingredient. For this reason, the appropriate fungal
division is given for each disease as it appears (e.g. Zygomycota is
mentioned against potato blight).
