The SEF updated the book ‘Plant Pathogens Described in Spain’, first edited in 1998. In this Second Edition, updated to 2005, a substantially higher number of records are included: the number of viruses has increased from 63 in the first edition to 103, viroids from 12 to 37, bacteria from 30 to 50, mollicutes from 7 to 8, fungi from 271 to 412 and nematodes from 35 to 48.
