Other Pathogenic Organisms

Coffee Rust: visible as brown patches on the coffee leaves of plants. A
fungal disease, coffee rust destroyed the coffee plantations of Ceylon (Sri
Lanka) in the nineteenth century. After that, tea was grown instead

Fungi include moulds, yeasts, rusts and fleshy types such as mushrooms.
Fungal spores are ubiquitous (everywhere) and, as they are heterotrophs,
[1] depend on organic matter. There are thousands of different kinds of
fungi. Relatively few are pathogens [2] of animals, including humans; but
many more are pathogens of plants. A fungal infection is referred to as a
mycosis [3]. Fungi can be classified according to where the infection
occurs - for example, in humans or in plants - or according to their method
of nutrition.
