Book Title: Pathogenic Root-infecting Fungi

Author: S.D. Garrett

Book Description:

Although there have been many advances in the field of Plant Pathology since "Pathogenic Root-Infecting Fungi" was published in 1970, this book remains an excellent source of knowledge for students interested in soil-borne pathogens and how they interact with plant roots. Garrett's simple and direct writing style makes this book an enjoyable read. Many important concepts related to the ecology and pathogenicity of root-infecting fungi are covered by Garrett and his liberal use of examples of different host/pathogen systems to explain these concepts allows the reader to visualize and better understand this fascinating group of organisms.
