Research Investment Implications of Shifts in the Global Geography of Wheat Stripe Rust

Publication Date: October, 2015

Comparing the cost of developing stripe-rust-resistant varieties of wheat with the cost of stripe-rust-induced yield losses, we estimate that a sustained annual research investment of at least US$32 million into stripe rust resistance is economically justified.

Wheat Stem Rust Vulnerability

Publication Date: January, 2014

Much of the wheat-growing area of Africa is susceptible to stem rust, a fungal disease of wheat. The map shows where crops might be vulnerable to stem rust infection.

Spatial Connectedness of Plant Species: Potential Links for Apparent Competition via Plant Diseases

Publication Date: December, 2013

This study evaluated the reactions of seven common C4 grasses of the tallgrass prairie of the USA Great Plains to the economically important wheat pathogens Pyrenophora tritici-repentis and Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici (Ggt) isolated from wheat.

Combining a Climatic Niche Model of an Invasive Fungus with Its Host Species Distributions to Identify Risks to Natural Assets: Puccinia psidii Sensu Lato in Australia

Publication Date: May, 2013

We used CLIMEX to develop a semi-mechanistic global climatic niche model based on new data on the distribution and biology of P. psidii s.l. The model was validated using independent distribution data from recently invaded areas in Australia, China and Japan. We combined this model with distribution data of its potential Myrtaceae host plant species present in Australia to identify areas and ecosystems most at risk.

Right-Sizing Stem-Rust Research

Publication Date: April, 2013

We estimate global wheat losses over the past 50 years absent investments in research to limit impacts of stem rust and discuss how this can inform decisions about “right-sizing” research investments.

CLIMEX Modelling of the Potential Global Distribution of the Citrus Black Spot Disease Caused by Guignardia Citricarpa and the Risk Posed to Europe

Publication Date: February, 2013

Distributions of citrus black spot disease (caused by Guignardia citricarpa) in South Africa, Australia and Taiwan were used to develop a set of parameter values that provide a better fit to the known distribution of G. citricarpa.
