OF TREES AND SHRUBS
Diseases of Trees and Shrubs is a comprehensive pictorial survey of the disorders of forest and shade trees and woody ornamental plants in the United States and Canada. An authoritative reference, it is also a reliable and handy diagnostic tool that will simplify the identification of specific plant diseases by focusing on signs and symptoms that can be seen with the unaided eye or with a hand lens.
This long-needed book gives readers complete, up-to-date- information in an easily understood and convenient way. Each of the 247 color plates faces a page of explanatory text covering the biology ad ecology ( including host and geographic ranges) of the disease-causing agents (pathogens), a list of key references ( there are more than 2250), and, in some cases, black-and-white illustrations of pathogens. Selected information about biological and cultural control is provided. Scientific terms other than Latin names of pathogens are used only when necessary, and a glossary of terms and a comprehensive index are included.
The color plates contain more than 1700 illustrations of the diseases and injuries that some 350 biological agents and environmental factors cause to more than 250 species of plants. The book also serves as a guide to hundreds of other diseases related to those shown.
Diseases of Trees and Shrubs can be profitable reading for anyone whose technical training does not extend beyond beyond general biology, yet will also be informative to advanced students and plant pathologists. It will be welcomed by agricultural and horticultural advisors, plant inspectors, arborists, nursery professionals, landscapers, foresters, and urban planners.
