Based on a similarly named meeting in December 1999, organized by the British Society for Plant Pathology, this book considers the biology of interactions between host plants and the pathogens that infect them. This important topic has seen some significant advances in the past 10 years, especially through the application of molecular techniques, which are extensively covered in this book.

Industry Reviews

"Overall the book provides a vital reference source for those ecologists, plant pathologists and agriculturalists who need to begin to understand the complexity of biotic interactions and their influence on plant disease."
