CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for What is a plant disease?

This chapter provides an introduction to the various factors, i.e. the host plants, the pathogens (fungi and fungal-like organisms, bacteria, viruses and nematodes) and the environment, and their interactions that may or may not result in a plant disease.

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for History of plant pathology.

This chapter describes how understanding of plant disease has evolved, leading to the concept of pathogens as causal agents of disease. There have been additional paradigm shifts from the early discoveries of plant pathogens and their roles to the recent advances in biological science and...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for The disease cycle and lifestyles.

After the first contact between host and pathogen, a series of specific events follow which leads to the development of a disease and, ultimately, an epidemic. This series of events is called a disease cycle. Often, a disease cycle is essentially the same as the pathogen's life cycle, but the key...

Cover for Fungal-like plant pathogens.

The organisms described in this chapter are eukaryotic and they belong to two different kingdoms, Chromista and Protozoa. They are often incorrectly referred to as 'fungi' because they have some morphological traits in common with true fungi. Most of them are microscopic, but some can make...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Mechanisms of pathogenicity.

The living plant surface represents a formidable barrier to most microorganisms and only a few of those that come in contact with an individual plant are capable of entering and subsequently establishing an infection which causes disease. The tools that the successful pathogen may use include:...

Cover for Plant defence against pathogens.

This chapter focuses on the physiological mechanisms that arrest pathogen development or simply prevent infection. Cell-autonomous plant defences comprise two layers, namely the constitutive defences, which are physical barriers and antimicrobial factors produced during the course of normal plant...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Race specificity and plant immunity.

The levels of disease caused by a particular pathogen species on its host plant can vary considerably. This has both fascinated plant pathologists and been exploited by plant pathologists and plant breeders for over a century. Different isolates of the pathogen can be more or less aggressive, and...
