There are more than 800 species of eucalypts, several of which are grown for paper, pulp and timber. However, these trees suffer from several debilitating leaf and shoot diseases which severely impede growth and can even lead to tree death. In this study 110 different fungal genera associated with foliar disease symptoms of these hosts are treated. Fungal diagnoses and disease symptoms are supplied, enabling users to identify the causal organisms. The book is also supplemented by an index to fungal species, and an extensive supplementary table with hosts, distribution, fungal isolates and DNA barcodes of the various species treated, making this a valuable resource for diagnosticians for forest pathologists alike.
