Over 90 scientists worldwide contributed their research to this comprehensive volume on the biology, epidemiology and control of Verticillium.
Advances in Verticillium: Research and Disease Management includes research on molecular biology and vegetative compatibility of Verticillium species and strains; the epidemiology, physiology, and host-parasite interactions of Verticillium species; and the management of Verticillium wilt diseases using biological, cultural, and chemical means.
Future research priorities are also discussed in the areas of taxonomic relations of species and strains, soil microbiology, and new disease management approaches.
