Plant Pathologist's Pocketbook.

  title={Plant Pathologist's Pocketbook.},
  author={J. M. Waller and J Lenn{\'e} and Stephanie Waller},
The handbook for student and practising plant pathologists has been thoroughly reorganised and updated since the publication of the 2nd edition in 1983. Features include: rearrangement of topics to facilitate use; 49 short succinct chapters, each providing practical information; new topics - landmarks in plant pathology, survey of sampling procedures, disease evaluation, effects of climate change, biochemical and molecular techniques, epidemic modelling, breeding for resistance, laboratory… 
Biology and epidemiology of Moniliophthora roreri, causal agent of Moniliophthora pod rot of cacao
This study studied the relationship between the MPR infection process and the onset of symptoms of three different cacao clones through artificial inoculations and determined that symptoms/signs onset is close enough to the infection moment that the influence of the microclimate over onset of the symptoms could be extrapolated to the time of infection.
Pathotypes of Cochliobolus sativus on barley in Australia
Preliminary experiments showed that maximum separation of infection responses of seedlings to infection by C. sativus conidia was obtained at 21°C using inocula containing 104 conidia/mL and a dew period of 40 h.
Charakterisierung von Helianthus - Wildarten im Freiland: Biometrische, histologische und biochemische Untersuchungen
A new chromatographic method was developed to determine complete phenolic patterns in the genus Helianthus and revealed a close quantitative and inverse association between putative flavonoid leaf phenolics and the mycelial extension in the leaf mesophyll.
Fundamentals and Advances in Plant Problem Diagnostics
Without the foundational information from thorough and focused observation on-site and access to all horticultural information and inputs for the crop in question, no amount of advanced technology can reliably correct for deficiencies in the primary steps in diagnosis.
The turf grass of Cynodon dactylon that collected from Technical Institute Khabat-ErbilKurdistan region-Iraq naturally infected by the nematode (Meloidogyne sp.) was fixed, then sectioned and
Effects of microclimatic variables on the onset of symptoms and signs of Moniliophthora roreri for three cacao clones in a range of incomplete resistance
This research aims to compare MPR development, symptoms onset of the disease and fungal sporulation for three cacao clones in a range of incomplete resistance Pound-7 (highly susceptible), CC-137 and CATIE-R4 (highly resistant) and understand the influence of different microclimatic variables on this development.
Physiological and genetic variability of Zygomycetes causing post-harvest decay
This review summarizes the available information regarding the genetic and physiological variability, strain typing and taxonomy of this fungal group.
Induction of sporulation of cercosporoid pathogens of moth vine (Araujia hortorum)
A technique to obtain abundant sporulation of two cercosporoid species isolated from diseased leaves of this host is developed and it is expected the new medium may prove useful for other cercOSporoid pathogens as well, at least for those affecting related hosts in the Apocynaceae.
Title Phylogenetic and morphological assessment of five new speciesof Thozetella from an Australian rainforest
DNA sequence data of ITS regions within nuclear rDNA confirmed the morphological species concept and indicated that Thozetella species are anamorphs of the ascomycete genus Chaetosphaeria.
Temperature requirements of Colletotrichum spp. belonging to different clades
The fungal genus Colletotrichum includes plant pathogens that cause substantial economic damage to horticultural, ornamental, and fruit tree crops worldwide. Here, we conducted a systematic
