Summary

The new book The Vegetable Pathosystem: Ecology, Disease Mechanism, and Management provides an overview of the multitude of pathogens that plague vegetables in various conditions as well as the growing concerns associated with these phytopathogens. Variability in vegetable pathogens is a critical issue, particularly in changing environments, as it presents challenges to accurate diagnoses and proper management. This book focuses on the diverse ecology of phytopathogens, covering the varying disease categories (acute, chronic, and emerging), the mechanisms involved in disease development, pathogen variability, and disease management. The book also discusses the preharvest and postharvest challenges that arise due to these phytopathogens.

This compilation presents an array of chapters authored by specialists in the field that examine the myriad serious vegetable phytopathogens as well as specific methods for increasing treatment and resistance toward these virulent pathogens.

The book explores various fungal, bacterial, viral, phytoplasmal, and nematode diseases in the most widely grown vegetables. The chapters all address a unique combination of pathogens, vegetables, and climate, and each chapter also incorporates figures, tables, and examples to enhance the coverage of the variety of pathogens within the book.

This book will be useful for students, professors, and scientists in the fields of horticulture, plant pathology, and postharvest biology as well as for individuals conducting research in these areas.
