About this book

Exercises in Plant Disease Epidemiology, Second Edition provides a wide range of exercises to help users learn and practice the latest, most advanced methods for determining the spread and control of plant diseases. Research and extension scientists will use the book to get up to speed quickly and the exercises featured in the book will offer various levels of difficulty to challenge graduate students and postdoctoral scientists.

This highly practical, educational title offers a structured approach ideal for both classroom instruction and self-study. Each exercise has a common format with an emphasis on procedure and evaluation. In addition to the print content of the book, users can go to a special online portal for hands-on engagement in statistical and quantitative exercises. This allows instructors to employ a mix-and-match approach to their classes and the self-taught user to brush up on the latest theory and practices at his or her own pace online as needed.

Topics covered in the book include
- A basic description of epidemics
- Temporal and spatial development of epidemics
- Laboratory-based exercises
- Statistical methods in epidemiology
- Populations, ecology, and genetics
- Disease management

The book comprises 33 chapters edited by Katherine L. Stevenson and Michael J. Jeger, who have more than 60 years combined experience on research and teaching in plant disease epidemiology. Each chapter was written individually by authors who are authorities on their respective topics.

Exercises in Plant Disease Epidemiology, Second Edition provides basic topical background information of each exercise together with suggestions for further reading. This information, along with classroom instruction, will make possible the practical implementation of the exercises and help build confidence and benefit the individuals concerned.

All exercises are supported by software that is either public domain or commonly available commercially, allowing greater accessibility for students and users overall. For further aid to accessibility, the book’s Appendix includes information on all the commonly used software.
