Advances in Plant Pathology: v. 7
This special volume of Advances in Plant Pathology is devoted to the pathogen Phytophthora infestans. Due to its devastating effects on potato crops, this pathogen has been the cause of major famines and affected the lives of millions of people. Consequently, research on Phytophthora infestans has been of major concern to plant pathologists and it will play an increasing role in plant pathological research in the future.

The Reviews of Previous Editions "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." --PLANT PATHOLOGY
