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.

This invaluable resource introduces the eleven types of organism that cause plant disease, ranging from higher plants to viroids and describes examples of cash and staple crop diseases that have caused human catastrophes. Early chapters cover serological and molecular techniques for the diagnosis of plant pathogens, epidemiology, methods for estimating disease severity and its effect on crop yields and techniques for limiting inoculum. Later chapters are concerned with colonisation of the plant and symptom development and the underlying biochemical and genetic factors that control these events. Finally, the control of plant disease using a variety of techniques including genetic modification is discussed. Modern diagnostic techniques Epidemiology and the measurement of disease severity The biochemistry and molecular biology of plant disease Control through cultural, biological, genetic and molecular techniques A wealth of examples and applications including full colour photographs

The text, conveniently divided into 13 chapters, deals with fundamental aspects of plant pathology viz., scope and objectives, importance of plant diseases, history and development of plant pathology, theory of plant diseases, causes of plant diseases (biotic, abiotic and plant viruses with representative examples) symptoms, general characteristics of plant pathogens, classification of phytopathogens, growth and reproduction of plant pathogens including replication of plant viruses, liberation or dispersal of plant pathogens, their survival and types of parasitism and variability in plant pathogens. At the end of each chapter, important questions have been provided for the benefit of the students. Diagrams, convincing tables and suitable graphs/illustrations are furnished at appropriate places. A complete bibliography and apt subject index are appended at the end. Besides undergraduate students, this book will also serve as a basic guide to meet the requirement of teachers/researchers in plant pathology and related fields.

The first part of this book combines basic information on antigens and antibodies with a review of technologies for both the development of recombinant antibodies and their application. The principles involved in producing recombinant antibodies from either pre-existing monoclonal antibodies or from phage display libraries are introduced with practical examples. Modern methods for the analysis of antibody binding properties are described in detail. Examples are given in the second part of this book for the application of recombinant antibody technology to antibody-mediated resistance to plant disease and immunomodulation of plant antigens. The potential of antibody-expressing plants as bioreactors for large-scale production and storage of recombinant antibodies is described and a future outlook given.
