Introduction: Features of interest
Members of the Sclerotiniaceae are plant pathogens characterized by stalked apothecia with inoperculate asci. Apothecia arise from stromata, e.g. sclerotia which are formed on or in the tissue of the host plant. The apothecial state and the type of stroma are typical and taxonomically relevant features of the Sclerotiniaceae, and the family has been supported and delimited by DNA sequence data (Carbone & Kohn, 1993; Holst-Jensen et al., 1997a,b).
