Description

Articles in this volume analyze rapidly evolving approaches, many at the cusp of development, to research plant defence mechanisms, pathogen variability, and epidemiolgy. Some of the topics covered include: contributions of population genetics to plant disease epidemiology and management; cellular interactions between plants and biotrophic fungal parasites; and asexual sporulation in the oomycetes.
