Cover Story (view full-size image): Pine pitch canker caused by Fusarium circinatum, an emergent invasive disease in Europe, has a strong potential to become established. Predictions of its future trajectory and impact should be based on a better knowledge of some prominent factors such as the tree microbiome, which plays a role in host-plant fitness and resilience, and modulates plant–pathogen and pathogen–pathogen interactions. The available information on pine pathogens that are able to co-occur with F. circinatum in Europe is here reviewed and interpreted to theoretically predict the effects of such co-occurrences. This updated geographical distribution of the relevant pine pathogens also tries to facilitate differential diagnoses, particularly in nurseries, where some of them may cause symptoms similar to those induced by F. circinatum.
