Description

Phytoplasma Diseases of Major Crops, Trees and Weeds in Asia, Volume Two in the three-volume Phytoplasma Diseases in Asian Countries series, provides an analysis of plant pathogens across Asia, taking a  deep-dive into the different types of plants affected by phytoplasma and offering management strategies to develop resistant plant strains. Phytoplasma diseases pose serious economic losses in many Asian countries, for which there is very little awareness amongst society. Chapters in this volume comprehensively review predominant plant species and how they are impacted by phytoplasma diseases, providing information on host-pathogen interaction, characterization and genetic diversity. This series will be an essential read for students, researchers and agriculturalists interested in plant pathology. Volume Two will be of particular interest to those who want to access the latest information on plant management and successful plant breeding strategies.
