Abstract

The two available phytoplasma classification systems are suffering for the inability to accommodate all the taxa that are described with an always faster pace. There are still problems in fulfilling taxonomic rules for binomial nomenclature in spite the advances in knowledge of phytoplasma molecular and physiological aspects. For the plant pathology perspective the most important taxon is the strain that is usually providing information about specific epidemiological features of diseases. The finding of suitable molecular markers is very important to verify phytoplasma epidemiological routes and pathogen relevance.
