Infections caused by dikaryotic urediniospores play a major role in limiting agricultural production. Consequently, research has focused on infections of this type and has been the central theme of numerous reviews (Littlefield and Heath, 1979; Bushnell and Roelfs, 1984; Mendgen et al., 1988; Hoch and Staples, this volume). Research on basidiospores and basidiospore-derived infections has received significantly less attention. This may be partially due to their lesser economic importance, but is also a result of the lack of reliable methods to activate teliospore germination, and therefore basidiospore production, of agriculturally important rusts (Petersen, 1974; Mendgen, 1984).<br />This chapter builds upon existing brief reviews of basidiospore germination (Petersen, 1974; Mendgen, 1984), host penetration (Littlefield and Heath, 1979), and the morphology of intracellular structures (Harder and Chong, 1984). Our approach relies on a comprehensive illustration of the events and structures important in the initiation of basidiospore-derived infections. application/pdf Gold, Randall E. 2011-03-24T17:34:28Z First publ. in: The Fungal Spore and Disease Initiation in Plants and Animals.
