Technical Abstract: The development of disease resistant cucurbit crops has been the focus of many germplasm evaluation and enhancement studies. This presentation especially emphasizes some of these studies that have dealt with the recognition of physiological specialization within fungal pathogen species that attack cucurbit crops. This recognition has been basic to and has driven many efforts to identify sources of resistance and to incorporte this resistance into cucurbit crops.
