The book covers the entire field of plant pathology in one volume. It provides up-to-date information and discussess both general and specialised topics. Almost all types of diseases are covered, including root diseases, seed-borne diseases, post-harvest diseases of fruits and vegetables, diseases caused by bacteria,viruses, mycoplasms and nematodes. NOn-parasitic diseases are also discussed in detail.Life and diseases cycles of important plant pathogens are adequately covered. The text is profusely illustrated with about 200 figures in the form of line diagrams and photographs. The chapter-end questions provide a refresher exercise to the reader. With its coverage, apart from the plant pathology courses, the book also meets the complete requirements of agriculture and botany students. Key features During the last few decades, the application of biotechnology to plant pathology has revolutionized out understanding of genetics for building resistance in plants against diseases, by way of producing transgenic plants. And hence, a new chapter "Application of Biotechnology to Plant Pathology" has been added along with the chapter "Phytopathological Techniques in Plant Pathology". This would familiarize the student of Plant pathology to some of the basis techniques. The present edition gives the latest information avilable on plant diseases and their management. Several chapters have been thoroughly revised to bring in new information. This edition also contains discussion on a number of diseases that were not included in the earlier edition.

Studies of the interactions between plants and their viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens are of major importance in plant and crop production. More than 10% of potential agricultural yield is lost to these organisms annually worldwide, and major epidemics can cause significant local economic and environmental damage. Molecular Plant Pathology addresses the underlying molecular principles of plant/pathogen interactions, in a readily-accessible textbook format.

A Textbook of Plant Pathology provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of plant pathology. It offers an introduction to plant pathology for those new to the field. The text covers approximately 50 diseases in crop plants, providing details of symptoms, disease cycle and control measures. The book is divided into two parts, covering the principles of plant pathology and important plant diseases in crops. The section on principles of plant pathology includes a history of plant pathology, symptoms of plant diseases, epidemiology and forecasting of plant diseases, host-parasite inter-relationships and their interactions, the effect of climatic conditions on plant diseases, physiologic specialization, defence mechanisms, methods of studying plant diseases, and principles of plant disease control. Every disease discussed consists of causal organism, symptoms, disease cycle, breeding, disease-resistant varieties and chemical control methods. The book also includes a list of periodicals on plant pathology.

Plant diseases can have an enormous impact on our lives. In a world where total crop failure can quickly lead to human misery and starvation, accurate diagnostics play a key role in keeping plants free from pathogens. In Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols, expert researchers provide methods which are vital to the diagnosis of plant diseases across the globe, addressing all three categories of plant pathology techniques: traditional, serological, and nucleic acid. Chapters examine recent and developing issues with crop identity and authenticity, allowing workers to genotype samples from two major food groups. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and reader-friendly, Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols is an incredible guide which will soon prove to be indispensable, both to novices and expert researchers alike.

This collection of papers represents some of those given at the International Congress for Plant Pathology held in Turin in 2008 in the session with the title “The Role of Plant Pathology in Food Safety and Food Security”. Although food safety in terms of “Is this food safe to eat?” did not receive much direct attention it is, never theless, an important topic. A crop may not be safe to eat because of its inh- ent qualities. Cassava, for example, is cyanogenic, and must be carefully prepared if toxicosis is to be avoided. Other crops may be safe to eat providing they are not infected or infested by microorganisms. Mycotoxins are notorious examples of compounds which may contaminate a crop either pre- or post-harvest owing to the growth of fungi. Two papers in this book deal with toxins, one by Barbara Howlett and co-workers and the other by Robert Proctor and co-workers. In the first of these, the role of sirodesmin PL, a compound produced by Leptosphaeria ma- lans, causal agent of blackleg disease of oilseed rape (Brassica napus), is discussed. The authors conclude that the toxin plays a role in virulence of the fungus and may also be beneficial in protecting the pathogen from other competing micro-organisms but there seem to be no reports of its mammalian toxicity.
