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.
- Sicard A, Zeilinger AR, Vanhove M, Schartel TE, Beal DJ, Daugherty MP, Almeida RPP. 2018. Xylella fastidiosa: Insights into an emerging plant pathogen. Annu Rev Phytopathol. doi: 10.1146/annurev-phyto-080417-045849.
There was also a recent paper by a French group led by Samuel Soubeyrand that inferred pathogen dynamics from surveillance data. The work is very interesting and certainly worth the time.
- Soubeyrand S, de Jerphanion P, Martin O, Saussac M, Manceau C, Hendrikx P, Lannou C. 2018. Inferring pathogen dynamics from temporal count data: the emergence of Xylella fastidiosa in France is probably not recent. New Phytol. doi: 10.1111/nph.15177.
