Written for use as a general biology course, its fascinating historical approach will pique the interest of the undergraduate student. It will also prepare him or her to address controversial modern issues including genetic engineering and pesticide use. Plant pathology instructors will find the text appropriate for students who require a less detailed introduction to phytopathology. Suitable as an independent text or as supplemental reading.
