Parasitic infection on seagrass

This summer we are investigating Labyrinthula zosterae infection on the temperate seagrass Zostera marina. L. zosterae is the causative agent of Wasting disease, which results in black lesions on the plant. We have collected plants from different areas along the Swedish coast in hope of studying how popuations from different areas withstand the infection. Thus, plants are inoculated with the pathogen here at Tjärnö to asses the effects of the infection.
