Some reasons why the latent period should not always be considered constant over the course of a plant disease epidemic

Abstract:

The latent period is a crucial life history trait, particularly for polycyclic plant diseases, because it determines how many complete infection cycles could theoretically occur during an epidemic. Experiments in controlled conditions are generally used to assess pathogenicity and host susceptibility, and also provide the opportunity to measure the distribution of latent periods in epidemiological systems. Once estimated for one or several pairs of host–pathogen genotypes, the mean value of t...
