BooknewsProvides an introduction to representative tree diseases commonly found in North America. In order to make the text "student-friendly," the authors treat relatively few tree pathogens and hosts and keep their discussions brief and general. For each disease covered, the authors provide a name, a definition, and information concerning the primary causal agents, hosts, history, symptomatology, etiology, and control. For most diseases, they include a diagram of the disease cycle and b&w photos of representative symptoms and signals. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
