About this book

The Taxonomic Manual of the Erysiphales (Powdery Mildews) is a fully revised, expanded new version of U. Braun's former monograph from 1987, which is out of print. The present book covers the taxonomy of all powdery mildew fungi. New chapters have been prepared for phylogenetic relationships, conidial germination, conidia as viewed by Scanning Electron Microscopy, fossil powdery mildews, and holomorph classification. The treatment of the Erysiphales, its tribes and genera are based on recent molecular phylogenetic classifications. A key to the genera (and sections), based on teleomorph and anamorph characters is provided, supplemented by a key solely using anamorph features. Keys to the species are to be found under the particular genera. A special tabular key to species based on host families and genera completes the tools for identification of powdery mildew taxa. In total, 873 powdery mildew species are described and illustrated in 853 figures (plates).

The following data are given for the particular species and subspecific taxa: bibliographic data, synonyms, references to descriptions and illustrations in literature, full descriptions, type details, host range, distribution and notes. A further 236 taxonomic novelties are introduced, comprising the new genus Takamatsuella, 55 new species, four new varieties, six new names and 170 new combinations. A list of excluded and doubtful taxa with notes and their current status is attached, followed by a list of references and a glossary.

This manual deals with the taxonomy of the Erysiphales worldwide, and provides an up-to-date basis for the identification of taxa, as well as comprehensive supplementary information on their biology, morphology, distribution and host range. This monograph is aimed at biologists, mycologists and phytopathologists that encounter or study powdery mildew diseases.
