About this book

Very significant advances have been made in downy mildew research since the last major text on these oomycete fungi and the diseases they cause was published in 1981. The emphasis in this new volume is on evolution and phylogeny, control with chemicals including those that manipulate host plant defences, mechanisms of resistance, virulence and the gene pool of wild relatives of crop plants. Additionally, definitive lists of binomials and authorities provide a key reference source. The book is relevant to anyone with an interest in these unique biotrophic pathogens, either in their own right as causes of damaging diseases or as model systems for research on host-pathogen interactions. It should be read by: students, teachers and researchers in academic and research institutes; research and development personnel in the agrochemical industries; agricultural and horticultural advisers, and other extension workers.
