Abstract/Contents:Presents research on anthracnose basal rot (Colletotrichum cereale), providing a brief history of the disease. Details host susceptibility for annual bluegrass and creeping bentgrass, and explains the mechanism of infection for cool-season turfgrasses. States that "even though C. cereale infects a wide range of cool-season grasses, DNA fingerprint analysis of the fungus collected from cool-season grasses in the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and Europe has shown that individuals from different host plants are members of 11 distinct population groups." Mentions its infection of warm-season turfgrasses, and discusses the "symptomology, diagnosis, and the disease cycle" for anthracnose. Notes that "although anthracnose outbreaks sometimes occur on infected turfgrass in winter, the fungus is believed to be largely inactive during cold weather." Briefly overviews future research priorities for anthracnose control.
