Description: 

Quantifying the relationship between climatic variation and the development of plant disease facilitates control of disease under field conditions. This research considers both past and possible future effects of long-term climatic variation on disease occurrence. Current research focuses on the biology of the Septoria diseases that are increasing in their importance as limiting factors to wheat production.
