Summary

The effects of climate
change on plant pathogens could be roughly divided in three groups: 1) Direct effects on plant
pathogens environment: on temperature and moisture during the growing season and winter.
2) Effects on host plant: increased CO2 level, autumn sown crops, abiotic stresses. 3) Indirect
effects on plant pathogen: evolution of pathogens to better survive in changed environment.
In this paper, the changes that have been observed in plant pathogen species on field crops in
Finland will be discussed.
