Description of Plant Pathogen Detection and Disease Diagnosis 2nd Edition


Plant Pathogen Detection and Disease Diagnosis written by P. Narayanasamy is a great book for plant pathogen studies to get in (PDF) free download. The 1st edition (1997) of this book was well-received by all concerned with crop disease diagnosis and management. The importance of precise identification of rapid detection of microbial pathogens for achieving effective crop disease management has been increasingly realized, as reflected published by numerous research papers in the past few years. Some microbial phytopathogens have been the phylogenetic relationships of many pathogens and identified, have been established based on new information. 

The biochemical inadequacy characteristics and morphological characteristics alone to establish the identity of microbial pathogens has been demonstrated. Some studies have demonstrated the need to make wider use of modern molecular methods that provide more reliable information for the identification, detection, and differentiation of microbial phytopathogens.
