Overview

Fusaria, which are found throughout the world, are among the most important causes of economic loss in crop yield and quality. Major food and fiber crops of the world are seriously affected by this group of fungi, making quick and certain identification of these organisms vital. This book, the first of its kind, supplies this sorely needed information by providing a practical pictorial guide for identifying Fusarium species. Based on the Snyder-Hansen taxonomic revision of the genus, it details the morphological criteria for identifying the species and the methods for growing Fusarium cultures under standardized optimum conditions.

The heart of this large-format volume consists of extremely high quality photographs—including plates in full color—of the distinct spore morphology of each species, together with some of their major variations. The book is designed to help workers readily recognize similarities within species as well as the differences between species, and to compare Fusarium unknowns directly with the illustrations, to aid in rapid identification.
