About this book

Provides practical details of techniques used in plant clinics for plant disease diagnosis and assessment.

"Certainly this short handbook would be of tremendous use to workers at field stations in developing countries trying to identify the cause of some disease outbreak. It would be similarly helpful to those people at plant clinics across the United States, whether located in county offices or at universities, who daily work with specimens brought by home gardeners and commercial growers. Together, the three authors seem to have thought of every contingency, and their experience should make a new employee of any plant clinic more at ease with his or her job and more quickly productive. I would strongly recommend this handbook for that purpose."--HortScience
