Comparison is a powerful cognitive research tool in science since it does "across studies" to evaluate similarities and differences, e.g. across taxa or diseases. This book deals with comparative research on plant disease epidemics. Comparisons are done in specifically designed experiments or with posterior analyses. From the apparently unlimited diversity of epidemics of hundreds of diseases, comparative epidemiology may eventually extract a number of basic types. These findings are very important to crop protection. Plant disease epidemiology, being the ecological branch of plant pathology, may also be of value to ecologists, but also epidemiologists in the areas of animal or human diseases may find interesting results, applicable to their areas of research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book presents examples of across-studies in the area of plant diseases ... . The book is recommended not only as a tool for a better understanding of criteria, methods and procedures, but also as a comprehensive compilation of examples from the area of plant disease epidemiology in the light of comparative epidemiology. Additionally, the book includes ... innovative suggestions, including a discussion on equivalence tests and meta-analysis. ... Altogether, this book is a very helpful tool in studying and understanding comparative epidemiology." (J. Pons-Kuhnemann, Journal of Phytopathology, Vol. 151, 2003)
