The video series The Biology of Fungal Pathogens combines three-dimensional computer animation with photography to present the life cycles of various fungal pathogens. Covering Septoria Blotch of Wheat, Tan Spot of Wheat, Net Blotch of Barley, and Powdery Mildew, this use of modern visualization technology provides life-like images that leave the viewer with a lasting impression of biological and ecological aspects of host-pathogen interactions.
Available in VHS or DVD, The Biology of Fungal Pathogens provides knowledge of the conditions under which parasitic fungi live and develop. Animated color photographs of plant disease symptoms enable visual identification of diseases and the description of improved laboratory techniques allows researchers to achieve a higher degree of accuracy. Data on pathogen distribution within countries provides reliable information on geographic trends. With impressively lucid commentaries, these videos provide fascinating insight into the life cycles of major fungal pathogens, speeding crop disease detection and treatment.
Imparting images impossible to capture and present with conventional microscopy, The Biology of Fungal Pathogens, is appealing to both the novice and the expert. Professors and their students in secondary, undergraduate, and post-graduate education as well as technical advisors and the growers they serve will marvel at the knowledge conveyed by these award-winning videos.
