Extra informatie

This is the fifth edition of the classic textbook on plant diseases, outlining how to recognize them, treat them, and prevent them. Agrios' classic text provides exhaustive pedagogical coverage of fungal, viral, bacterial, nematode and other plant diseases, and their associated epidemiology. It also covers the genetics of resistance and modern management of plant disease. Plant Pathology is the most comprehensive textbook and complete resource that students, faculty, and professionals turn to when in need of well-organized, essential information. This revised edition covers new discoveries and understandings in plant pathology that have occurred since the fourth edition was published in 1997.

Quote

"I have mentioned to numerous undergraduate and graduate students during the past two decades that plant pathologists are indeed fortunate to have the text Plant Pathology by George N. Agrios as an accessible, comprehensive reference on many aspects of phytopathology...The content of the fifth edition (922 pages) represents a significant expansion of content from the fourth edition (635 pages)...there are numerous new sections within individual chapters. Revised chapters contain significant expansion of text, figures, and photographs. A new feature of the book is shaded text boxes that contain brief articles of separate but related topics...Overall, the extensive use of color in the fifth edition readily accomplishes 'the author's dream to have all the figures in color' and is a welcome addition to this new edition...The comprehensive index to the text is very helpful as topics, pathogens, and diseases are all cross-indexed...Overall, the fifth edition is a welcome addition to the literature on plant pathology, and is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this area of study." --G.J. Boland, University of Guelph, in AGRICULTURE, ECOSYSTEMSAND ENVIRONMENT

"Plant Pathology by George Agrios is a comprehensive treatise for those within or coming into this field. The fifth edition is partially built on the compilations of the previous editions, however, like following Dorothy from the black and white of Kansas to the color land of Oz, the addition of color has dramatically enhanced the clarity of photos and diagrams. This change is important for correctly identifying the plant disease symptoms. The photos, diagrams and text can be understood by readers ranging from master gardeners to basic researchers. The book's past reputation as the plant pathology "bible" is definitely enhanced and the price remains reasonable...With this book as a text, no excuse remains for a poorly taught plant pathology course." --Lee Hadwiger for PLANT SCIENCE

"This has become a very comprehensive book that every plant pathologist should have for reference. All students should be familiar with this book and it should be a part of their educational experience." --Patrick E. Lipps, Ohio State University

"Agrios text is the standard introductory work for the discipline of plant pathology. There is no single volume which matches it for breadth of topics and detail of coverage." --Jeanne D. Mihail, University of Missouri

Praise for the previous edition: "...a classic textbook embracing the whole of plant pathology, ideal for undergraduate courses and for those associated with research and practice of applied plant pathology in all climatic regions. The new, larger format and extensive use of high quality illustrations (including colour plates) and the widespread use of annotated flow diagrams to show pathogen life cycles, the gene-for-gene concept, forecasting of epidemics and procedures for isolation and culture of pathogens are all exceedingly well done. I recommend this book highly for teaching and reference." -- EXPERIMENTAL AGRICULTURE
