Ecological Interactions and Biological Control

By David A. Andow; David W. Ragsdale et al. | Go to book overview

mize host fitness in either the hard selection or the competition version of the model, it does reduce host fitness to a level very near that which would be reached at the internal equilibrium point. For successful biocontrol of a weed with a biotrophic pathogen, it is not necessary that resistance be completely absent from the host population, nor is it even necessary that an equilibrium be reached between resistance and virulence. What is absolutely essential is that the pathogen must have virulence genes to match any resistance genes present in the host population.
