Plant Pathology

G.P. Gupta (Author)
Synopsis The present title has been designed primarily for the use of students engaged in advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses in plant pathology. The requirement of a textbook in this field was pressing one since not only did the students find literature on the diseases and other pathological conditions difficult to obtain and to access, but no reasonably complete treatment of the subject from the student’s stand point was to be had. To fill this gap is the first objective of this title. Considering the field as a whole, however, it was realized that is addition to a textbook for classroom use, the subject was also greatly in need of a reference work. The pathologists and the research workers in biology have not had an available guide to all phase of the subject of plant pathology as such. For most of the information the research worker has been faced to consult are widely scattered in often almost inaccessible articles or incomplete accounts in larger volumes. Accordingly, the author, turned his attention to the preparation of the present book , which deals specially with plant pathology, i.e. with the microbial diseases as well as with certain amicrobial diseases, injuries and abnormalities. The task has not been easy one.
