Pressestimmen'... this dictionary is unique in its kind and completeness and undoubtedly it will be invaluable to all researchers working in applied plant pathology. The layout is pleasant and clear ... this book should be on the bookshelf of all plant pathologists and mycologists working with plant pathogenic organisms.' Liliane E. Petrini, Sydowia '... this dictionary should be in the possession of everyone involved in plant pathology in any capacity.' D. D. Clarke, Mycologist 'This volume is a welcome and very useful addition to the litereture in phytopathology. It is one of the 'essential' new books that should be in every plant pathologist's library.' Phytopathology News 'There is no comparable book; this one was undertaken to fill the void in the literature. It would be very useful to researchers and students of plant pathology.' E. L. Williams, Choice 'The author has been successful in filling the gap in the literature by writing the first comprehensive dictionary of plant pathology. The work is authoritative, of interest to plant pathologists at all levels, and an essential addition to personal and library reference collections.' Elizabeth B. Davis, ARBA 'It is a pleasure to report the issue of the second edition ... this is a standard reference work.' Mycotaxon 'Now in paperback ... it is a terrific bargain ... an excellent and scholarly production that should certainly find a regular place on the desks, rather than bookshelves of all those interested in plant diseases, their causes and control.' J. M. Duncan, Journal of Experimental Agriculture ' ... the author deserves full credit for his enormous effort to compile such a dictionary. The book can be recommended as a standard reference source for plant pathology institutions and libraries.' Journal of Phytopathology
