Epizootiology Of Insect Diseases Edited by James R. Fuxa and Yoshinori Tanada Contains the most extensive consideration to date of general principles, definitions, methods for research, modeling, influencing factors, area-wide patterns and groups of diseases, and applied aspects. Coverage spans four major areas. The first introduces general terminology and methodology from other disciplines, specific methodology for quantification, and modeling; the second evaluates and reviews key factors such as host population, pathogen population, environment, and transmission. Disease groups are addressed in the penultimate coverage, and the final section discusses practical aspects of disease enhancements. 1987 (0 471-87812-X) 555 pp. Innovative Approaches to Plant Disease Control Edited by Ilan Chet Brings together alternative approaches and methods which have potential for effective control of diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Three major concepts of disease control are discussed: different biological control systems, their possible mechanisms, potential application, and genetic improvement; biochemical and physiological manipulations in plants in order to include resistance and reduce disease damage; and molecular biology and the potential of genetic engineering in inducing plant resistance by the introduction of foreign genes. 1987 (0 471-80962-4) 372 pp. Vegetable Diseases and Their Control Second Edition Arden F. Sherf and Alan A. MacNab Here is an in-depth look at the nature and control of crop diseases. The book covers a full range of plant diseases and their cycles, including bacterial, fungal, viral, nematode, and abiotic blights. The introduction to each disease usually includes a brief history and the first report of the disease, geographical distribution, prevalence, importance as reflected in some of the most severe occurrences, and additional common disease names. For each crop or group of crops, the material presents all the significant diseases and their control measures, including resistant varieties, fungicides, crop rotation, and seed treatments. 1986 (0 471-05860-2) 728 pp.

Provides a comprehensive introduction to the science of plant epidemiology--its study, description, and prediction of disease development in plant populations and the clarification of relationships among factors that influence plant epidemics. Emphasizes the quantitative aspects of epidemiology and the increasing importance in the field of microcomputers and electronic environmental measuring devices. Readers are given a thorough, synthesized introduction to techniques employed in monitoring host, environment, pathogen and disease data, spatial and temporal analysis, experimental design and sampling, simulation, crop loss assessment modeling, and forecasting disease development.From the Inside Flap:
Plant disease epidemiology is the study of the temporal and spatial changes that occur during epidemics of plant disease. Introduction to Plant Disease Epidemiology describes the principles and methods of monitoring and analyzing epidemics of plant diseases and examines possible applications of epidemiological knowledge. Monitoring epidemics is presented from the perspectives of the host, pathogen, environment, and the resulting disease. Introduction to Plant Disease Epidemiology describes how to analyze disease progress in time and spread in space, and compares the most commonly used approaches to the analysis. It examines applications of epidemiological data and models, focusing in particular on sampling, crops loss assessment, and disease forecasting. Considerable progress has been made in the study of plant epidemiology over the last 30 years. As knowledge has increased, so has the sophistication of analysis and synthesis, and today a wide range of models and analytical techniques are available to the epidemiologist. In fact, the array of methodologies can be overwhelming. With that in mind, the authors of Introduction of Plant Disease-Epidemiology survey the discipline of plant disease epidemiology in a way that is simple, understandable, complete, and dynamic enough to excite and challenge the reader. Much of the practice of modern plant disease management is based on the principles of plant disease epidemiology. Furthermore, epidemiologists as well as population scientists are well situated to study the release of genetically engineered organisms. Therefore, it is imperative for plant pathologists to understand principles and methods used in this quantitative field. This book provides the foundation for those interested in starting a career in plant disease epidemiology or simply trying to understand the work of the epidemiologist.
