About this book

Over the last fifty years, there has been an increasing recognition that eucalypts are vulnerable to a wide range of diseases. They have suffered destructive epidemics, particularly of dieback caused by the cinnamon fungus in native forests, of foliar diseases and cankers in plantations, and of dieback of remnant trees on agricultural and grazing land.

This has stimulated intensive research into the causes and management of diseases of the eucalypts. Diseases and Pathogens of Eucalypts represents a comprehensive review of our current knowledge of the health and diseases of eucalypts.
