Description

Members of the genus Phytophthora cause serious damage to a huge array of plants. From the nineteenth century Irish potato famine to current widespread threats to forests and ecosystems in North and South America, Europe and Australia, the genus lives up to its reputation as the plant destroyer. This book provides an overview of Phytophthora species impacting crops, forests, nurseries, greenhouses and natural areas worldwide. Chapters cover major hosts, identification, epidemiology, management, current research, future perspectives and the impacts of globalization on Phytophthora. Phytophthora: A Global Perspective is an essential resource for researchers and extension workers in plant pathology and crop protection.

About Author

was born in Michigan in 1968 where he enjoyed a blissfully non-intellectual childhood in an auto-worker community where school was shunned and fishing and hunting elevated to the highest level. Annual family forays to harvest morel mushrooms in Northern Michigan initiated a life-long passion for all things fungal. His fascination with fungi eventually led to a fondness for the fungal-like and he's been studying Phytophthora since 1997. Much to his wife and 3 children's dismay, every supermarket vegetable bin is a potential Phytophthora treasure chest. In addition to the local supermarket, he's collected Phytophthora from sites across the US, the Amazonian high jungle of Peru, southern France, Vietnam, and multiple provinces in China, including Hainan Island. Since 2001, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. was born in Michigan in 1968 where he enjoyed a blissfully non-intellectual childhood in an auto-worker community where school was shunned and fishing and hunting elevated to the highest level.
