About this book

Revised edition of this renowned textbook.

This book is the best of a number of inexpensive paperbacks available for introductory courses in plant pathology...the authors are to be congratulated on a well-produced text. (Plant Pathology). The book is not intended to be a reference work but a guide, and if it is used as such, the reader should quickly, and enjoyably, gain a sound grasp of the principles of plant pathology. Journal of Experimental Botany
