Detection of Plant-Pathogenic Bacteria in Seed and Other Planting Material, Second Edition

Editorial: APS Press

Autor/es: M’Barek Fatmi, Ron R. Walcott, and Norman W. Schaad

Plant bacterial diseases are a major factor in economic crop losses worldwide. The transportation and use of clean, pathogen-free seed and propagative material is the most vital step in controlling bacterial diseases, but this requires accurate, rapid, sensitive, and reliable pathogen detection. The all-new second edition of Detection of Plant-Pathogenic Bacteria in Seed and Other Planting Material is an essential, easy-to-use lab manual describing and illustrating the latest methods for detecting a wide range of bacteria responsible for many of the world’s most economically significant bacterial plant diseases in crops. Yet this book does more than describe and illustrate the use of real-time PCR, rapid PCR-based assays, and other methods for specific, sensitive detection of bacteria in seed and propagative material. Its 48 chapters offer background information on the given bacteria and the diseases they cause, describe symptoms, detail their epidemiology, identify strategies for disease management, and provide protocols for detection in thorough detail.

 

 
 
Vector-Mediated Transmission of Plant Pathogens

Editorial: APS Press

Autor/es: Judith K. Brown

The study of vector biology encompasses various disciplines and levels of pursuit, each one examined separately and then collaboratively with the others to holistically explain the range of vector activities, like host-finding, feeding, and dispersal. This comprehensive monograph explains in detail the complex range of factors and interactions related to the vector-mediated transmission of plant pathogens. Each chapter offers detailed examples of particular pathogen-vector interaction modes, tying together many years of research to advance the understanding of pathogen-vector biology and interactions at biochemical, cellular-tissue-organ, and functional genomics levels. The final section includes short treatises on a number of emerging pathogen-vector complexes which will require further research. They were written with the goal of inspiring students and researchers to continue to advance this important field of study. Vector-Mediated Transmission of Plant Pathogens spans the disciplines of plant pathology, virology, bacteriology, mycology, entomology, and ecology. It is an ideal textbook and reference for students, professors, and all those who study or specialize in vector biology in general—or in relation to any of these disciplines.

 

 
 
Grapevine Viruses, Molecular Biology, Diagnostics & Mgmt

Editorial: Springer

Autor/es: B. Meng, G. P. Martelli, D. A. Golino, and M. Fuchs

The domestication of grapes dates back five thousand years ago and has spread to nearly all continents. In recent years, grape acreage has increased dramatically in new regions, including the United States of America, Chile, Asia (China and India), and Turkey. A major limiting factor to the sustained production of premium grapes and wines is infections by viruses. The advent of powerful molecular and metagenomics technologies, such as molecular cloning and next generation sequencing, allowed the discovery of new viruses from grapes. To date, grapevine is susceptible to 64 viruses that belong to highly diverse taxonomic groups. Recently, two new disease syndromes have been recognized: Syrah decline and red blotch. Losses due to fanleaf degeneration are estimated at $1 billion annually in France alone. Other diseases including leafroll, rugose wood, Syrah de cline and red blotch can result in total crop loss several years post-infection. This situation is further exacerbated by mixed infections with multiple viruses and other biotic as well as adverse abiotic environmental conditions, such as drought and winter damage, causing even greater destruction. The book builds upon the last handbook (written over twenty years ago) on the part of diagnostics and extensively expands its scope by inclusion of molecular biology aspects of select viruses that are widespread and economically most important. This includes most current information on the biology, transmission, genome replication, transcription, subcellular localization, as well as virus-host interactions. It also touches on several novel areas of scientific inquiry. It also contains suggested directions for future research in the field of grapevine virology.

 

 
 
Grapevine Yellows Diseases and Their Phytoplasma Agents

Editorial: Springer

Autor/es: M. Dermastia, A. Bertaccini, F. Constable, and N. Mehle

This work is to compile our current knowledge on GY phytoplasma biology at the genomic, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics level, as well as to summarize the approaches for their detection.Phytoplasma are the most poorly characterized plant pathogenic bacteria from the Mollicutes class. In recent years new biostatistics and bioinformatics approaches have improved our understanding of their biology and interactions with host grapevines and a great improvement has been made toward their molecular detection, both in laboratories and on-site. They have a broad range of plant hosts among the monocots and dicots, and diseases of many important crops are associated with these pathogens. At least ten taxonomically unrelated phytoplasmas, one of them a quarantine pest in Europe, have been associated with grapevine yellows diseases (GY), which have great economic impact on viticulture worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 
 
Compendium of Alfalfa Diseases and Pests, Third Edition

Editorial: APS Press

Autor/es: Edited by Deborah A. Samac, Landon H. Rhodes, and William O. Lamp

Section one addresses the commonly occurring infectious fungal diseases of alfalfa, grouped by leaves and stems, lower stems and crowns, and crowns and roots. This section also provides information on bacterial and mollicute diseases, diseases caused by viruses, and those caused by nematodes. The parasitic flowering plant dodder is also discussed. Section two covers arthropod (insect) pests, detailing their life cycles, damage, identifying features, and management. This section describes arthropods that feed on foliage, including many kinds of aphids and caterpillars, crickets, grasshoppers, leafminers, plant bugs, spittlebugs, and weevils. Root and seed pests are given special sections, as is a livestock pest, the blister beetle. Section three, titled ‘Noninfectious Diseases and Abiotic Conditions,’ discusses the effects and management of genetic variations and abnormalities, herbicide injury, high-temperature flooding injury, nutrient deficiencies and toxicities, foliar freeze injury, and winter injury. The appendix presents an updated list of common names of diseases of alfalfa caused by microbes, nematodes, and viruses, as well as arthropod insect pests of alfalfa.

Biology, Detection, and Management of Plant Pathogens in Irrigation Water

Editorial: APS Press

Autor/es: Edited by Chuanxue Hong, Gary W. Moorman, Walter Wohanka, and Carmen Buttner

Part I addresses the links between crop diseases and irrigation water. It describes water sources, recycling, and distribution systems and assesses their risk in exposing crops to waterborne plant pathogens. It also discusses specific plant pathogens found in these systems. Part II examines the diversity and biology of plant pathogens in water. Part III covers the latest technologies and methods for detecting and quantifying plant pathogens in irrigation water. Parts IV and V present an array of strategies and tactics for risk-avoidance and mitigation. These can be implemented at any point in business development, from land purchase to production system design and in-season management—and at different points in the system, from runoff containment basins to pump houses and production beds. Part V addresses pathogen management through good system design and the application of best practices.
