About this title

Synopsis:

Diseases of Fruit Crops in Australia is the new standard reference in applied plant pathology in Australia covering important diseases affecting the broad range of fruit and nut crops grown throughout Australia. It is an essential tool for growers, horticulturists, crop consultants, research scientists, plant pathologists, quarantine officers, agribusiness representatives, pest management personnel, educators and students. The book is generously illustrated with high quality colour images to help diagnose diseases and explains how to identify and manage each disease, describing the symptoms of the disease, its importance, the source of infection and spread and control measures. Based on the highly regarded 1993 edition of Diseases of Fruit Crops, this new work updates management practices that have evolved since then. Importantly, it contains the latest information on diseases that have recently emerged in Australia as well as exotic diseases that are biosecurity threats to Australian fruit and nut production.

His work in research and extension is undertaken both in Australia and internationally. Tony's focus has been to reduce postharvest disease losses which can be extensive in markets. He has collaborated on previous handbooks of fruit and vegetable diseases published by DPI&F. Denis Persley Susan House is a specialist in information extension with the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries, teaming with scientists to create electronic and print resources for agricultural industries. She has developed handbooks and web products for producers in forestry, horticulture and viticulture. Her pursuit of science writing and communication developed from 15 years' experience in research, teaching and publishing in biological sciences, including reproductive ecology of Australian rainforest and woodland trees.
