About this book

Many plant diseases have had far reaching social and economic effects, such as the Irish potato blight which caused a mass emigration to America. This book covers all aspects of diseases of wild and cultivated plants in farm, forest and garden. Drawing on personal observations in the field and laboratory, the authors discuss all types of diseases, from those caused by fungi and bacteria such as rots, mildews, rusts, smuts and tumours to those caused by viruses.
