Phytophthora: A Global Perspective

Editorial: CABI Plant Protection Series No. 2, I2013, ISBN-13: 978-1780640938

Autor/es: Kurt Lamour (Ed.)

Members of the genus Phytophthora cause serious damage to a huge array of plants. From the nineteenth century Irish potato famine to current widespread threats to forests and ecosystems in North and South America, Europe and Australia, the genus lives up to its reputation as the plant destroyer. This book provides an overview of Phytophthora species impacting crops, forests, nurseries, greenhouses and natural areas worldwide. Chapters cover major hosts, identification, epidemiology, management, current research, future perspectives and the impacts of globalization on Phytophthora. Phytophthora: A Global Perspective is an essential resource for researchers and extension workers in plant pathology and crop protection.

Compendium of Sweetpotato Diseases, Pests, and Disorders

Editorial: APS PRESS 2013, ISBN 978-0-89054-410-5

Autor/es: Christopher A. Clark, Donald M. Ferrin, Tara P. Smith, and Gerald J. Holmes (Eds.)

The second edition contains 325 color photographs (an increase of 243 compared with the previous edition) depicting the diagnostic symptoms of these diseases and disorders. These features make the book invaluable to growers, extension specialists, and diagnosticians in their efforts to accurately identify diseases and disorders they find on sweetpotatoes and to develop strategies to manage these problems. This book provides the most up-to-date and authoritative information available on each disease prepared by leading experts in each discipline.Each section has a comprehensive list of the critical research publications that will allow researchers to quickly dive into work on diseases that may be new to them.

 
 
Fungicides for Field Crops

Editorial: APS PRESS 2013, ISBN 978-0-89054-420-4

Autor/es: Daren Mueller, Kiersten Wise, Nicholas Dufault, Carl Bradley, and Martin Chilvers (Eds.)

Fungicides for Field Crops provides an overview of the current knowledge of fungicides and their use on field crops. This comprehensive book, which includes the contributions of 40 professionals from 20 universities and other organizations, combines past knowledge about fungicides with recent developments in the realm of field crop fungicides. Fungicides for Field Crops highlights the use of fungicides as key tools in the management of important diseases of field crops. Management is presented as a decision-making process—one in which factors as diverse as weather conditions and economics must be considered. Having a more complete understanding of fungicides will inform that decision making and help determine when fungicides should be included as part of a management plan. 

 
 
Fungal Biology in the Origin and Emergence of Life

Editorial: Cambridge University Press 2013, ISBN 9781107652774

Autor/es: David Moore

 The rhythm of life on Earth includes several strong themes contributed by Kingdom Fungi. So why are fungi ignored when theorists ponder the origin of life? Casting aside common theories that life originated in an oceanic primeval soup, in a deep, hot place, or even a warm little pond, this is a mycological perspective on the emergence of life on Earth. The author traces the crucial role played by the first biofilms – products of aerosols, storms, volcanic plumes and rainout from a turbulent atmosphere – which formed in volcanic caves 4 billion years ago. Moore describes how these biofilms contributed to the formation of the first prokaryotic cells, and later, unicellular stem eukaryotes, highlighting the role of the fungal grade of organisation in the evolution of higher organisms. Based on the latest research, this is a unique account of the origin of life and its evolutionary diversity to the present day.

 
 
Methodologies for Metabolomics. Experimental Strategies and Techniques

Editorial: Cambridge University Press 2013, ISBN 9780521765909

Autor/es: Norbert W. Lutz, FranceJonathan V. Sweedler, Ron A. Wevers (Eds.)

Metabolomics, the global characterization of the small molecule complement involved in metabolism, has evolved into a powerful suite of approaches for understanding the global physiological and pathological processes occurring in biological organisms. The diversity of metabolites, the wide range of metabolic pathways, and their divergent biological contexts require a range of methodological strategies and techniques. Methodologies for Metabolomics provides a comprehensive description of the newest methodological approaches in metabolomic research. The most important technologies used to identify and quantify metabolites including nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry are highlighted. The integration of these techniques with classical biological methods is also addressed. Furthermore, the book presents statistical and chemometric methods for evaluation of the resultant data. The broad spectrum of topics includes a vast variety of organisms, samples, and diseases, ranging from in vivo metabolomics in humans and animals, to in vitro analysis of tissue samples, cultured cells and biofluids.

Plant Virology, 5th Edition

Editorial: Academic Press, ISSN 9780123848710

Autor/es: Roger Hull

The seminal text Plant Virology is now in its fifth edition. It has been 10 years since the publication of the fourth edition, during which there has been an explosion of conceptual and factual advances. The fifth edition of Plant Virology updates and revises many details of the previous edition while retaining the important earlier results that constitute the field's conceptual foundation. Revamped art, along with fully updated references and increased focus on molecular biology, transgenic resistance, aphid transmission, and new, cutting-edge topics, bring the volume up to date and maintain its value as an essential reference for researchers and students in the field.
