This is a very nice piece of science writing by Giorgia Guglielmi, which covers some aspects of the early stages of the Xylella fastidiosa epidemic in Italy affecting olive trees. You can write the PDF version of her thesis here: DOWNLOAD
A couple of review articles on Xylella fastidiosa were just published: Bucci EM. 2018. Xylella fastidiosa, a new plant pathogen that threatens global farming: Ecology, molecular biology, search for remedies. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 502(2):173-182. doi: 10.1016/j.bbrc.2018.05.073.

Experimental research is laborious and takes time, but it is necessary. Congratulations to authors for pursuing a technically challenging project; a key a milestone in learning how to manage this olive disease in Italy. Isolation and pathogenicity of Xylella fastidiosa
