Abstract

The disciplines traditionally used to investigate the mode of action of fungicides have been biochemistry and physiology. Over the past decade, classical and molecular genetics have been brought to bear on this problem with increasing success. Recently, genetic studies of fungicide resistance have led to advances in our understanding of the site of action of chemicals active against plant pathogens and, in some cases, to an appreciation of additional mechanisms of resistance to fungicide action.
