About this book

Colletotrichum is one of the most widespread and important genera of plant pathogenic fungi worldwide, causing disease on many temperate and tropical crops. These fungi have also been used in many fundamental studies of plant-pathogen interactions and are being developed as mycoherbicides for the biological control of weeds. This book is the first to be devoted exclusively to these pathogens. It provides a definitive source of information, not only about the diseases caused by Colletotrichum, but also about its taxonomy and genetics, mechanisms of infection and of plant disease resistance, disease epidemiology, and control of diseases through the integration of methods based on chemicals, biocontrol agents and plant breeding. The work is an essential reference volume for plant pathologists and mycologists.
