Product Description

Review

"I have mentioned to numerous undergraduate and graduate students during the past two decades that plant pathologists are indeed fortunate to have the text Plant Pathology by George N. Agrios as an accessible, comprehensive reference on many aspects of phytopathology...The content of the fifth edition (922 pages) represents a significant expansion of content from the fourth edition (635 pages)...there are numerous new sections within individual chapters. Revised chapters contain significant expansion of text, figures, and photographs. A new feature of the book is shaded text boxes that contain brief articles of separate but related topics...Overall, the extensive use of color in the fifth edition readily accomplishes 'the author's dream to have all the figures in color' and is a welcome addition to this new edition...The comprehensive index to the text is very helpful as topics, pathogens, and diseases are all cross-indexed...Overall, the fifth edition is a welcome addition to the literature on plant pathology, and is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this area of study." -G.J. Boland, University of Guelph, in AGRICULTURE, ECOSYSTEMS & ENVIRONMENT "Plant Pathology by George Agrios is a comprehensive treatise for those within or coming into this field. The fifth edition is partially built on the compilations of the previous editions, however, like following Dorothy from the black and white of Kansas to the color land of Oz, the addition of color has dramatically enhanced the clarity of photos and diagrams. This change is important for correctly identifying the plant disease symptoms. The photos, diagrams and text can be understood by readers ranging from master gardeners to basic researchers. The book's past reputation as the plant pathology "bible" is definitely enhanced and the price remains reasonable...With this book as a text, no excuse remains for a poorly taught plant pathology course." - Lee Hadwiger for PLANT SCIENCE "This has become a very comprehensive book that every plant pathologist should have for reference. All students should be familiar with this book and it should be a part of their educational experience. - Patrick E. Lipps, Ohio State University "Agrios' text is the standard introductory work for the discipline of plant pathology. There is no single volume which matches it for breadth of topics and detail of coverage. - Jeanne D. Mihail, University of Missouri Praise for the previous edition: "...a classic textbook embracing the whole of plant pathology, ideal for undergraduate courses and for those associated with research and practice of applied plant pathology in all climatic regions. The new, larger format and extensive use of high quality illustrations (including colour plates) and the widespread use of annotated flow diagrams to show pathogen life cycles, the gene-for-gene concept, forecasting of epidemics and procedures for isolation and culture of pathogens are all exceedingly well done. I recommend this book highly for teaching and reference." - EXPERIMENTAL AGRICULTURE

Format: Hardcover
In the first part, great description of ecology, genetics and interactions of pathogens and hosts are presented.
In the second part, numerous diseases are clearly and concisely described.
Above all, absolutely great illustrations that make this difficult subject really much more clear.
Highly recommended

Format: Hardcover
Lovely book, serious study, the fact that it is American makes it slightly less useful for British plants,but still love it. Brilliant look forward to reading the whole thing not just the bits I need now.

By Marcin on 9 Mar. 2011
Format: Hardcover
I did my master degree 5 years ago in Environmental Management and Agriculture and because my job ranges in a plant pathology I was looking for something which would recall and update my knowledge. I found exactly what I was looking for. Hundreds of high quality photographs (micro and macro), life cycles and many other, worth consider, useful information.It is an excellent book and worth its money. I can guarantee, that you will not regret the purchase. Extremely recommended.

I am very pleased with this book as it is exactly what I needed .It is most comprehensive, yet easy to read because of the style of writing and the most attractice layout.As well as providing all the background information it also helped me to come up with some innovative ideas for preventing and treating plant diseases.

This is a book that each plant pathologist should have. It contains a variety for topics and it is good for both students and reaserchers.
