This volume covers the latest developments in different areas of plant pathology. The chapters in this volume are organized into seven parts. Part One provides traditional methods for isolation and identification of invasive pathogens and root disease. Part Two looks at new and rapid DNA extraction protocols from different samples, and Part Three focuses on molecular detection protocols for identifying and quantifying plant pathogens, including fungal and bacterial invasive species. Part Four describes the application of metabarcoding in plant pathology, and Part Five talks about plant pathogen interactions. Part Six concentrates on population genomics of plant pathogens, and Part Seven covers biocontrol on plant pathogens. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and thorough, Plant Pathology: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for researchers in the plant pathology community, and discusses various approaches for the detection, identification, and control of plant diseases.

Plant diseases can have an enormous impact on our lives. In a world where total crop failure can quickly lead to human misery and starvation, accurate diagnostics play a key role in keeping plants free from pathogens. In Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols, expert researchers provide methods which are vital to the diagnosis of plant diseases across the globe, addressing all three categories of plant pathology techniques: traditional, serological, and nucleic acid. Chapters examine recent and developing issues with crop identity and authenticity, allowing workers to genotype samples from two major food groups. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and reader-friendly, Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols is an incredible guide which will soon prove to be indispensable, both to novices and expert researchers alike.

This book offers a comprehensive guide to the identification, detection, characterization, classification and management of plant pathogens and other beneficial microbes in agriculture. The science of plant pathology is a dynamic field and, given the growing interest in sustainable agricultural practices, plant disease management has also gained importance. Further, there has been a shift from traditional chemical-based methods to eco-friendly integrated disease management strategies with a greater focus on bio-control and other eco-friendly technologies. This book provides a comprehensive and timely account of latest concepts and advances in the field of plant pathology, including detection and diagnosis, host resistance, disease forecasting and plant biotechnological approaches. Accordingly, it will be of great interest to academics and all stakeholders working in the fields of plant pathology, microbiology, biotechnology, plant breeding, and other life sciences.

This book is based on the syllabus prescribed by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, for the first and second year undergraduate students of plant pathology in State Agricultural and Horticultural Universities and hence, is of special importance to these students. The text, conveniently divided into 13 chapters, deals with fundamental aspects of plant pathology viz., scope and objectives, importance of plant diseases, history and development of plant pathology, theory of plant diseases, causes of plant diseases (biotic, abiotic and plant viruses with representative examples) symptoms, general characteristics of plant pathogens, classification of phytopathogens, growth and reproduction of plant pathogens including replication of plant viruses, liberation or dispersal of plant pathogens, their survival and types of parasitism and variability in plant pathogens. At the end of each chapter, important questions have been provided for the benefit of the students. Diagrams, convincing tables and suitable graphs/illustrations are furnished at appropriate places. A complete bibliography and apt subject index are appended at the end. Besides undergraduate students, this book will also serve as a basic guide to meet the requirement of teachers/researchers in plant pathology and related fields.
