Plant diseases are caused by several microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. They significantly affect plant health and productivity. Recent advances in molecular and genomics of plant diseases raises a need to integrate knowledge of microbial taxonomy, genomics, and plant pathology that reflects state-of-the-art knowledge about plant-disease mechanisms. This book provides a concise but comprehensive description of plant diseases with special focus on plant diseases caused by numerous microbial pathogens, from a plant biologist's and a microbiologist’s point of view.
