The pathology of plant life is an on-going and never ending study whose importance cannot be overestimated if America is to remain the world leader in agriculture. A respected textbook in the agricultural studies curriculums of colleges and universities throughout the country, "Plant Pathology: Concepts And Laboratory Exercises" is now available for a new generation of agricultural science students in a fully updated and significantly expanded second edition. The collaborative work of Robert N. Trigiano, Mark T. Windham, and Alan S. Windham (three renowned American agricultural researchers and academicians), "Plant Pathology" now features two additional chapters on soilborne pathogens, molecular plant fungal interactions, and expanded treatment of molecular tools (including AFLPs), advanced biocontrol concepts, as well as the use and care of microscopes. An accompanying CD-ROM provides figures from the text, supplemental full-color photos, and PowerPoint slides. It also provides students with laboratory exercises appropriate for developing and applying a wide range of thematically appropriate skill sets, detailed step-by-step instructions for experiments, as well as the identification of anticipated results, thought-provoking questions, and a glossary. Of special note is the use of real-world case studies. "Plant Pathology" should be considered a critically important core reference for academic library Agricultural Studies collections and will prove to be of immense interest for students interested in an historical perspective and conceptual frameworks concerning plant diseases and disease relationships, plant disease epidemiology, control strategies, and diagnosis.
