From the Preface:

This compendium is the cumulative effort of many forest pathologists from most parts of the world where conifers are important. Each author was asked to address the topic globally but was allowed to emphasize the local situation that was most familiar. The authors of individual sections are recognized at the end of each contribution.

We have attempted to make this compendium useful to a wide range of people, from students in forestry and pathology to practitioners and researchers who require a broad view of the field. Each article concludes with a short list of references to provide access to the relevant literature. General references and texts on forest pathology are listed in the introduction to this volume.

This title is also available in Spanish.
