"This is an excellent textbook for a graduate level course in plant virology... For virologists, plant pathologists, and other biologists whose teaching or research activities have some relation to the plant viruses, this should be a most useful reference work."--BIOSCIENCE"The text is highly readable and the form of the volume is outstanding. This book gives up-to-date information of nearly all aspects of plant virology and can be highly recommended for students and researchers."--ACTA PHYTOPATHOLOGICA"The author is experienced in many of the areas which he covers, and writes clearly and critically about them all."--AMERICAN SCIENTIST"Highly recommended."--CHOICE

Book Description Academic Press, Inc., New York City, New York, 1970. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. "This volume gives an up-to-date account of all aspects of plant virology and provides a comprehensive examination of general principles. The topics dealt with include the assay and isolation of viruses and their components, the structure of representative viruses and their protein and nucleic acid components, and variation in viruses with special emphasis on the relationships between structural change and biological function. The replication of plant viruses is considered in relation to the processes known to occur in bacterial and animal virus replication. Virus transmission from plant to plant, relationships with invertebrate and fungal vectors, mycoplasma-llike organisms of plant pathology, and the macroscopic, cytological and biochemical changes occuring in virus-infected plants are covered. The inactivation of viruses in vitro and in vivo receive consideration, as well as the questions of ecology, economic importance, and control measures. The final chapter discusses problems of nomenclature and theories of origin." This book has 778 pages and is illustrated throughout.
