In a field study we found that two rust fungi, Tranzcheliaanemones and Ochropsora ariae, on the shared host Anemone nemorosa varied in abundance among populations. Tranzchelia anemones was favoured in high light habitats and was particularly common in mixed deciduous forests as well as productive grasslands, whereas the abundance and occurrence of O. ariae was dependent on the presence of the alternate host, Sorbus aucuparia When found in the same population, the two rusts rarely attacked the same ramet. Both T. anemones and O. ariae had a negative effect on plant performance by reducing flower production, and rhizome length. Diseased shoots were also elongated.
