About this book

This book presents an often overlooked fact: that the pioneering research on Dutch elm disease was done by women scientists. These women studied and recorded the earliest information on this disease. The translators read these papers with enormous hindsight, developed in 70 years of DED outbreaks, and through thousands of scientific publications on the disease. It is fascinating to look through the eyes of these young women afresh at this disease and to follow how they reached their (mostly correct) conclusions.
