About The Books

The book encompasses chapters on fungi from different substrates including fossilized leaves. In addition to non-living substrates, association of pathogenic fungi with important plants like Introduction, Fungal Plant Pathogens and Symptomology, Fungal Taxonomy and Plant Pathogens, Pythium Root Rot and Rhizoctonia Root Rot, Septoria Tritici Blotch (STB) of Wheat, Fungal Plant Pathogens and Symptomology, Diseases of Wheat, Biotrophic Plant Pathogens, Fungal and Fungal-like Diseases of Plants, Important Plant Pathogenic Organisms and Breeding for Disease Resistance: Fungi, Bacteria, Fastidious Vesicular Bacteria, Phytoplasmas, Spiroplasmas, Viruses, Viriods, Algae, Protozoa and Phanerogamic Parasites, Plant Pathogenic Fungi, Diseases of Vegetable caused by Soilborne Pathogens, Soil-borne Plant Pathogens, Plant Diagnosis: Question and Answers, Biodiversity of Plant Pathogenic Fungi, Fungal Diseases of Oilseeds and their Management, Biological Control of Plant Pathogens, Plant Pathogens - Detection and Diagnostics, Integrated Approaches for Detection of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria and Diagnosis of Bacterial Diseases, Integrated Pest Management and Crop Health, Eliminating Insect Damage and Abiotic Disorders of Plant Disease Problems: Identification and Management, Diagnosing Plant Diseases Caused by Fungi, Bacteria and Viruses: Identification and Management, Glossary. Thus, the book has attempted to present information for as many substrates as possible—living, senescing, and decomposing, with widely approached and updated information. However, these are not complete in a sense, as all information available cannot be put in one book. It is hoped, however, that teachers, researchers and students may find the book helpful.
