Description

The Brown Rot Fungi of Fruit: Their Biology and Control describes the brown rot group of related pathogens. Organized into ten chapters, this book first discusses the history, symptoms, host, life cycles, and geographical distribution of brown rot fungi. Subsequent chapters describe the fungi's taxonomy, nomenclature, structure, morphogenesis, physiology, biochemistry, survival, evolution, and status. Other chapters elucidate the control of the brown rot fungi.
