    DescriptionPlant disease epidemiology is a dynamic science that forms an essential part of the study of plant pathology. This book brings together a team of 35 international experts. Each chapter deals with an essential component of the subject and allows the reader to fully understand how each exerts its influence on the progress of pathogen populations in plant populations over a defined time scale. This edition has new, revised and updated chapters.

    Review quote
    From the reviews of the second edition: "This second edition contains updated and new contributed chapters in the same format as the first edition ... . The topics covered understandably have a strong United Kingdom flavour, but several chapters deal with widely applicable principles and are illustrated by examples from several countries. Although plant disease epidemiology relies heavily on quantitative methods, most chapters in this book are written without a strongly mathematical slant, which will make the book attractive to the many students and researchers who are not mathematically inclined." (Rob Beresford, Plant Pathology, 2006)
    Back cover copy
    Plant disease epidemiology is a dynamic science that forms an essential part of the study of plant pathology. This book brings together a team of 35 international experts. Each chapter deals with an essential component of the subject and allows the reader to fully understand how each exerts its influence on the progress of pathogen populations in plant populations over a defined time scale. Since the first edition of the text was published in 1998, many new developments have occurred in the subjects covered, particularly molecular diagnostics, modelling, fungicide resistance and information technology. The second edition of the book is a comprehensive text on all aspects of plant disease epidemiology that should serve as an invaluable reference work for those involved in this fascinating science of crop plants.
