Aim of Pestolive

The aim of PESTOLIVE is to help the development of new sustainable management strategies by involving enlightenment about historical co-adaptation of soil-borne parasite communities to olive-tree domestication, breeding and cropping. In order to provide adequate answers to questions emerging from the weakening of Mediterranean eco-anthroposystems due to soil-borne parasites, PESTOLIVE would develop an integrated network of pan-Mediterranean research focused on two soil-borne pest groups, plant-parasitic nematodes (taxa belonging to Tylenchida, Dorylaimida and Aphelenchida orders) and phytopathogenic fungi (especially Verticillium and Fusarium groups), and on their common antagonists, especially mycorrhizae.
