The majority of phytopathogenic fungi belong to the Ascomycetes and the Basidiomycetes. Biotrophic fungal pathogens colonize living plant tissue and obtain nutrients from living host cells. Fungal diseases are both more widespread and more destructive than the other diseases of plants; they diminish harvests and decrease crop quality significantly, and they shorten the productive life span of fruit trees and berry fields.
