Cover for Taxonomy.

Throughout the monograph, it has been difficult to avoid overlap in subject matters, which is particularly a problem with multisubject papers. Where a biochemical study is designed specifically with taxonomic objectives, it is considered under taxonomy. Only Verticillium albo-atrum, Verticillium...

Cover for Hosts.

Verticillium wilts are overwhelmingly diseases of dicotyledonous plants in temperate regions. The extent to which disease is expressed is a complex function of the species and strain of Verticillium responsible, the degree of resistance of the host and the environmental conditions. Data on the host ...
