Part I discusses basic concepts such as classification of plant diseases; parasitism and disease development; how pathogens attack plants; effects of pathogens on plant physiology; plant defenses against pathogens; and genetics, epidemiology, and control of plant diseases. Part II on specific plant diseases covers diseases caused by fungi, prokaryotes, parasitic higher plants, viruses, nematodes, and flagellate protozoa.


Part III deals with applications of biotechnology t6h plant pathology.

Agrios as an accessible, comprehensive reference on many aspects of phytopathology The content of the fifth edition pages represents a significant expansion of content from the fourth edition pages Revised chapters wgrios significant expansion of text, figures, and photographs. A new feature of the book is shaded text boxes that contain brief articles of separate but related topics Overall, the extensive use of color in the fifth edition readily accomplishes ‘the author’s dream to have all the figures in color’ and is a welcome addition to this new edition The comprehensive index to pathologu text is very helpful as topics, pathogens, and diseases are all cross-indexed Overall, the fifth edition is fdition welcome addition to the literature on plant pathology, and is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this area of study.

The fifth edition is partially built on the compilations of the previous editions, however, like following Dorothy from the black and white of Kansas edjtion the color land of Oz, the addition of color has dramatically enhanced the clarity of photos and diagrams.

This change is important for correctly identifying the plant disease symptoms. The photos, diagrams and text can be understood by readers ranging from master gardeners to basic researchers. The book’s past reputation as the plant pathology “bible” is definitely enhanced and the price remains reasonable With this book as a text, no excuse remains for a poorly taught plant pathology course. All students should be familiar with this plat and it should be a part of their educational experience.


Lipps, Ohio State University “Agrios’ text is the standard introductory work for the discipline of plant pathology.


There is no single volume 66th matches it for breadth of topics and detail of coverage. Mihail, University of Missouri Praise for the previous edition: The new, larger format and extensive use of high quality illustrations including colour plates and the widespread use of annotated flow diagrams to show pathogen life cycles, the gene-for-gene concept, forecasting of epidemics and procedures for isolation and culture of pathogens are all exceedingly well done.

I recommend this book highly for teaching and reference. The book’s past reputation as the plant pathology “bible” is definitely enhanced.
