Product Description

Published in 1988, the first edition of the Compendium of Grape Diseases was a groundbreaaking book and has remained a major reference ever since.  This second edition, now titled Compendium of Grape Diseases, Disorders, and Pests, Second Edition, preserves the basic structure and value of the first while reflecting the many advances which have been made to the subject matter.  The Second Edition maintains a primary focus on multiple infectious diseases of grapes that are caused by fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, phytoplasmas, viruses, and viruslike agents, including the symptoms and diagnostic features for each of the diseases; the etiological agents and environmental conditions that interact with the host to cause them; and techniques for their management.

Due to the significant international value of grapes, the wide range of diseases that afflict the crop, and the critical role that disease management plays in its production, this Second Edition is published in an expanded format that allows additional pages of text and figures beyond those in the original, and includes 280 new photographs and drawings.  Representing 12 countries spread across five continents, 79 authors and co-authors who are recognized authorities in their fields provide a deliberate international scope and perspective to the information presented.
