Parasitic diseases and plant pathogens

Plant pathogens that are caused by pathogenic microorganisms. These organisms include fungi, bacteria, and viruses. About 85% of all plant diseases are caused by fungi. At one time fungi were considered to be types of plants. Indeed, mycology, the scientific study of fungi, is still done today in botany departments. However, in modern biology, fungi are not considered plants. They are placed in their own Kingdom (Mycota, for the serious biologists out there), with equivalent status to the familiar Animal and Plant Kingdoms.                                                                                                       

Most phytopathogenic fungi belong to the Ascomycetes and the Basidiomycetes.

The fungi reproduce both sexually and asexually via the production of spores and other structures. Spores may be spread long distances by air or water, or they may be soil borne. Many soil inhabiting fungi are capable of living saprotrophic ally, carrying out the part of their life cycle in the soil. These are known as facultative saprotrophs
