Microbial Plant Pathogens Detection and Disease Diagnosis

Author: P. Narayanasamy
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9048197694
Release Date: 2010-10-20
Genre: Science

Microbial plant pathogens causing qualitative and quantitative losses in all corps are present not only in the infected plants, but also in the environmental comprising of soil, water and air. The vectors present in the environment spread the microbial pathogens to short and/or long distances. Detection of microbial pathogens rapidly and reliably by employing suitable sensitive applicable for different ecosystems. The pathogens have to be identified precisely and differentiated and quantified to plan appropriate short- and long-term strategies to contain the incidence and spread of diseases induced by them. This book aims to present all relevant and latest information on the detection techniques based on the biological, biochemical, immunological and nucleic acid characteristics of microbial pathogens presents in the host plants, as well as in the natural substrates that support the survival and perpetuation of the pathogens.

Control of Crop Diseases

Author: W. R. Carlile
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781107375451
Release Date: 2012-05-03
Genre: Science

Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect current and emerging practices, this book explores modern methods of disease control in field and glasshouse crops. It outlines the major crop diseases, with a particular emphasis on those features of symptomology and life cycle that are most relevant to the development of control measures. Modern diagnostic techniques are considered, focusing on developments in nucleic acid and immunological based procedures and their use in plant quarantine and certification schemes. The potential impact of these advances in molecular technology on plant breeding and disease resistance is also covered. Fungicides are a central part of disease control in the EU and, as such, a comprehensive account of their use forms an important part of the text, along with strategies to minimise the incidence of fungicide resistance in pathogen populations. Looking to the future, the book also addresses legislative, environmental and food safety concerns.

Integrated Management of Diseases Caused by Fungi Phytoplasma and Bacteria

Author: Aurelio Ciancio
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781402085710
Release Date: 2008-08-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This volume focuses on integrated pest and disease management (IPM/IDM) and biocontrol of some key diseases of perennial and annual crops. It continues a series originated during a visit of prof. K. G. Mukerji to the CNR Plant Protection Institute in Bari (Italy), in November 2005. Both editors aim at a series of five volumes embracing, in a multi-disciplinary approach, advances and achievements in the practice of crop protection, for a wide range of plant parasites and pathogens. Two volumes of the series were already produced, dedicated to general concepts in IPM and to management and biocontrol of nematodes of grain crops and vegetables. This Volume deals, in particular, with diseases due to bacteria, phytoplasma and fungi. Every day, in any agroecosystem, farmers face problems related to plant diseases. Since the beginning of agriculture, indeed, and probably for a long time in the future, farmers will continue to do so. Every year, plant diseases cause severe losses in the global production of food and other agricultural commodities, worldwide. Plant diseases are not limited to episodic events occurring in single farms or crops, and should not be regarded as single independent cases, affecting only farms on a local scale. The impact of plant disease epidemics on food shortage ignited, in the last two centuries, deep cultural, social and demographic changes, affecting million human beings, through i. e. migration, death and hunger.

Die pileaten Porlinge Mitteleuropas

Author: Heinrich Dörfelt
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662567609

Dieser Band ist konzipiert, um mit relativ einfachen Mitteln die pileaten Porlinge Mitteleuropas bestimmen zu können. Zahlreiche, farbige Abbildungen helfen dem Leser bei der Bestimmung Holz bewohnender Baumpilze mit röhrenartigen Fruchtschichten. Da die Bestimmung der Arten einiger Erfahrung bedarf, helfen die detailreichen Fotos in Farbe auch weniger erfahrenen Naturfreunden weiter. Dem Leser wird in einem ersten Teil die Morphologie und Anatomie der Porlinge vorgestellt, bevor in einem zweiten Teil näher auf die einzelnen Arten eingegangen wird. Interessante Fakten über die Verbreitung, die Nutzung oder auch Erklärungen zu ungewöhnlichen Namensgebungen wie Zunderschwamm, Apothekerschwamm, Pflaumenbaumporling oder Schwefelporling fließen zwischen den Artbeschreibungen ein. Praktikern, Ökologen und auch Naturschützern soll dieser Band durch seine Hinweise auf alle europäischen Arten ein Leitfaden bei der Arbeit mit den Porlingen sein.

Author: Dave Goulson
Publisher: Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH Co KG
ISBN: 9783446447080
Release Date: 2016-02-22
Genre: Science

Der britische Biologe Dave Goulson unternimmt eine Expedition auf den Planeten der Insekten – genauer auf die Blumenwiesen rund um sein marodes französisches Landhaus. Die Helden seiner Feldforschungsabenteuer sind nicht nur Bienen und Hummeln, sondern alles, was kreucht und fleucht: Grillen, Grashüpfer, Glühwürmchen – und Libellen, denen beim Liebemachen zuzusehen eine Freude ist. Goulson taucht dabei so tief ins Reich der Tiere ein wie kaum jemand zuvor. Ein Buch, das die entscheidende Bedeutung von Insekten für unsere Umwelt und das ganze globale Ökosystem beleuchtet. Und ein Weckruf, die Nutzung von Insektiziden zurückzufahren, um das Sterben der Bienen und anderer Bestäuber zu stoppen.

Westcott s Plant Disease Handbook

Author: R. Kenneth Horst
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781468476828
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Science

It was a compliment to me to be asked to prepare the fourth edition of Westcott's Plant Disease Handbook, and the decision to accept the responsi bility for the fourth edition and now the fifth edition was not taken lightly. The task has been a formidable one. I have always had a great respect professionally for Dr. Cynthia Westcott. That respect has grown considerably with the completion of the two editions. I now fully realize the tremendous amount of effort expended by Dr. Westcott in developing the Handbook. A book such as this is never finished, since one is never sure that everything has been included that should be. I would quote and endorse the words of Dr. Westcott in her preface to the first edition: "It is easy enough to start a book on plant disease. It is impossible to finish it. " This revision of the Handbook retains the same general format contained in the previous editions. The chemicals and pesticides regulations have been updated; a few taxonomic changes have been made in the bacteria, fungi, and mistletoes; the changing picture in diseases caused by viruses and/or viruslike agents has been described. A few new host plants have been added, and many recently reported diseases as well as previously known diseases listed now on new hosts have been included. In addition, photographs have been replaced where possible, and the color photograph section has been retained.
