This thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition introduces the basic concepts and principles of plant disease identification and management for food, fiber, and landscape plants. Accessible to those with a limited background in biological science, this book covers four main aspects of plant pathology-how to recognize that a plant has a disease; how to determine the cause of the disease; how to manage diseases; and how to take advantage of the latest in disease management technologies. The authors offer several management approaches, including integrated pest management, biological control, new applications in biotechnology, and the use of chemical pesticides. They provide the techniques needed to prevent and treat diseases caused by nematodes, fungi, bacteria, viruses, and parasitic plants. Introductory chapters provide a useful review of the history of plant pathology and the development of plant diseases. The Second Edition of Introduction to Plant Diseases meets the needs of growers and pest management professionals, as well as those of extension agents and private consultants in plant disease management. It will be invaluable for introductory undergraduate courses in plant pathology and integrated pest/crop management, and for agricultural institute and technical programs on plant diseases and their management.

Book Description Chapman and Hall, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Every year we see a remarkable increase in scientific knowledge. We are learning more each day about the world around us, about the numerous biological organisms of the biosphere, about the physical and chemical processes that shaped and continue to change our planet. The cataloging, retrieval, dissemination, and use of this new information along with the continued development of new computer technology provide some of the most challenging problems in science as we enter the Information Age. With the explosion of knowledge in science, it is especially important that students in introductory courses learn not only the basic material of a subject, but also about the newest developments in that subject. With this goal in mind, we have prepared a second edition of Introduction to Plant Diseases: Identification and Management. We prepared this edition with the same general purpose that we had for the first edition - to provide practical, up-to-date information that helps in the successful management of diseases on food, fiber, and landscape plants for students who do not have a strong background in the biological sciences. We included new information on (1) the precise identification of diseases and the pathogens that cause them, (2) the development of epidemics of plant diseases, (3) the application of biotechnology in plant pathology, (4) the use of alternative methods of crop production and disease management that help protect the environment, and (5) diseases that have become more important since the first edition was published. Softcover reprint of the original 2nd ed. 1992. Seller Inventory # AAV9780412069611
