From the Preface:

Ceratocystis and Ophiostoma: Taxonomy, Ecology, and Pathogenicity is based on an international symposium that brought together researchers from different disciplines to discuss the many aspects of the biology of the ophiostomatoid fungi in a single forum. The broader subjects under consideration included taxonomy, ecology and pathogenicity.
