Epizootiology Of Insect Diseases Edited by James R. Fuxa and Yoshinori Tanada Contains the most extensive consideration to date of general principles, definitions, methods for research, modeling, influencing factors, area-wide patterns and groups of diseases, and applied aspects. Coverage spans four major areas. The first introduces general terminology and methodology from other disciplines, specific methodology for quantification, and modeling; the second evaluates and reviews key factors such as host population, pathogen population, environment, and transmission. Disease groups are addressed in the penultimate coverage, and the final section discusses practical aspects of disease enhancements. 1987 (0 471-87812-X) 555 pp. Innovative Approaches to Plant Disease Control Edited by Ilan Chet Brings together alternative approaches and methods which have potential for effective control of diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Three major concepts of disease control are discussed: different biological control systems, their possible mechanisms, potential application, and genetic improvement; biochemical and physiological manipulations in plants in order to include resistance and reduce disease damage; and molecular biology and the potential of genetic engineering in inducing plant resistance by the introduction of foreign genes. 1987 (0 471-80962-4) 372 pp. Vegetable Diseases and Their Control Second Edition Arden F. Sherf and Alan A. MacNab Here is an in-depth look at the nature and control of crop diseases. The book covers a full range of plant diseases and their cycles, including bacterial, fungal, viral, nematode, and abiotic blights. The introduction to each disease usually includes a brief history and the first report of the disease, geographical distribution, prevalence, importance as reflected in some of the most severe occurrences, and additional common disease names. For each crop or group of crops, the material presents all the significant diseases and their control measures, including resistant varieties, fungicides, crop rotation, and seed treatments. 1986 (0 471-05860-2) 728 pp.

Disease Resistance in Plants, Second Edition, looks at genetic, epidemiologic, biochemical, and biometric principles for developing new cultivars possessing genetic resistance to diseases. It examines the nature of disease resistance and resistance genes, and it highlights the importance of stabilizing selection, sugar, biotrophy, and necrotrophy to obtain the greatest possible yields. Organized into 17 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of disease resistance in plants and the ways to develop disease-resistant variants. It then discusses unspecific resistance; the resistance gene paradox; susceptibility and resistance within narrow host taxa; phenotypic variation and gene numbers in host plants; discontinuous variation and cytoplasmic inheritance; and experimental difficulties in partitioning variance. The reader is also introduced to epistasis and the structure of virulence in pathogens; the notion of physiological race; how the pathogen adapts to the host; mutation in the pathogen from avirulence to virulence; horizontal and vertical resistance to disease and its epidemiological effects; and the link between protein polymorphism and vertical resistance. In addition, the book discusses genes for susceptibility in the host versus genes for avirulence (or virulence) in the pathogen; sink-induced loss of resistance; high-sugar disease processes and biotrophy; slow rusting of cereal crops; plant resistance against endemic disease; and the accumulation of resistance genes in heterogeneous host populations. This book will be useful to plant pathologists and plant breeders.

Comparison is a powerful cognitive research tool in science since it does "across studies" to evaluate similarities and differences, e.g. across taxa or diseases. This book deals with comparative research on plant disease epidemics. Comparisons are done in specifically designed experiments or with posterior analyses. From the apparently unlimited diversity of epidemics of hundreds of diseases, comparative epidemiology may eventually extract a number of basic types. These findings are very important to crop protection. Plant disease epidemiology, being the ecological branch of plant pathology, may also be of value to ecologists, but also epidemiologists in the areas of animal or human diseases may find interesting results, applicable to their areas of research.

Prevent agricultural loss with natural disease controls that don’t harm the environment—or the people who live in it Despite the worldwide use of chemicals and pesticides to control the devastating effects of plant disease, the international agribusiness market still suffers extensive economic losses each year. Biological Control of Plant Diseases offers natural alternatives to the synthetic fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides that have not only failed to stop pests and pathogens, but have raised serious safety and environmental concerns. The world’s leading plant pathologists examine the use of antagonistic microorganisms, inherent resistance, and natural fungicides for plant protection that’s safe, economical, and effective. Biological Control of Plant Diseases presents up-to-date research findings on disease management to provide you with a single-source reference text for developing a sustainable ecosystem that doesn’t depend on harmful and unhealthy agrochemicals. This unique book acts as a catalyst for change, presenting fresh ideas and innovative strategies for finding meaningful solutions to the problems of disease control. Contributors working in the areas of plant protection, microbiology, plant pathology, biotechnology, ecology, and food safety examine topics that include the application of plant tissue culture, competitive root colonization, mycorrhiza in biocontrol, microbial siderophores, antagonism, and genetic regulation. Topics addressed in Biological Control of Plant Diseases include: soil-borne pathogens rhizobacteria organic acids white rot Trichoderma and Agrobacterium phyllosphere manure-based microbes gray mold disease major fungal diseases mycoparasitism microbial chitinases and much more Biological Control of Plant Diseases is an invaluable reference resource for extension scientists and academics working in botany, biology, entomology, ecology, agriculture, horticulture, plant pathology, and the environmental sciences.
