Understanding how pathogens emerge is essential to bring disease-causing agents under durable human control. Here, we used cross-pathogenicity tests to investigate changes in life history traits of the fungal pathogen Venturia inaequalis associated with host-tracking during the domestication of apple and subsequent host range expansion on the wild European crabapple (Malus sylvestris). Pathogenicity of 40 isolates collected in wild and domesticated ecosystems were assessed on the domesticated apple, its central Asian main progenitor (M. sieversii)...
