":...The two editors, David Ingram and Paul Williams, have both made important and innovative contributions to the subject and together have a breadth of approach that means that what they choose to put before their readers is likely to be of unusual interest or significance. They lack the anonymity of the large editorial board and can therefore be expected to try hard to achieve their objective of idea-oriented and, where appropriate, controversial articles with a flexibility of style, format andcontent that transcends mere reviewing of the literature. --PLANT PATHOLOGY This opening volume sets a high standard which, if maintained, will result in an interesting and useful series. --PLANT PATHOLOGY
