Features

  • Summarizes current knowledge about various virus-induced diseases in many economically important cultivated crops
  • Addresses the need for an improved acronym system by presenting a new system that provides better logic and greater consistency in referring to viruses
  • Serves as an authoritative reference for students of plant pathology and teachers of plant pathology, plant virology, horticulture, agronomy, and general agriculture
  • Proves accessible enough to be used as a classroom text
  • Provides useful information for plant clinics, diagnostic laboratory services, and biologists interested in the complex interactions between plants and their viral pathogens
  • Lists geographic distribution, host range, symptoms, and pathogenesis for each virus
  • Summary

    Handbook of Plant Virus Diseases presents basic information about viral-caused and viral-like diseases in many cultivated crops. The editors, internationally known plant pathologists, provide authoritative descriptive symptomatic signatures of virus diseases, to aid in the diagnosis and possible control of viruses. This handbook organizes cultivated plants into groups according to their final destinations and uses after harvest-a useful grouping system that indicates that some diseases, their resultant epidemiology, and control measures are characteristic within different groups.
