This book is the first single-source of taxonomic information on Leptographium species. Leptographium Species: Tree Pathogens, Insect Associates, and Agents of Blue-Stain covers all known species of the fungi. Detailed illustrations, comprehensive descriptions, and keys to the species will aid in the identification of this destructive fungi which is amongst the most important causal agents of sapstain in timber.

Most of these fungi are carried by bark beetles, and the complex ecology of the relationships between Leptographium and their vectors has intrigued plant pathologists, mycologists, entomologists, ecologists, and foresters for years. This single resource will help anyone working with lumber accurately identify all known species of these fungi.
