Soilborne diseases have, until recently, received less attention than plant diseases affecting the shoot and foliage. However, this is not a reflection of their economic importance, but rather of difficulties in investigating and detecting pathogens below soil level. Many soilborne diseases are stress related and it is in the tropics where crop growth is particularly limited by environmental stress, predisposing crops to infection by soilborne pathogens. There is thus a great need for information on soilborne diseases of crops in the tropics. This book aims to fill this need by providing reviews of relevant research. It covers the major tropical crops and also includes general chapters on principles, ecology and control. Written by leading research workers from countries including the UK, USA, Australia and India, it will be indispensable for plant pathologists working in this area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This recent volume should be a welcome addition to the literature on tropical plant diseases as this subject has not yet been covered in any comprehensive way. After introductory surveys on the importance of soilborne diseases in the tropics and the methodology for their study, eleven chapters are
dedicated to individual crops . . . or groups of crops . . . To their credit, the editors maintain uniform format and style from chapter to chapter, allowing one to browse through the volume. The contributors consistently provide an updated and comprehensive overview of their subjects. . . . I would
highly recommend this book as a good recent overview of soilborne plant diseases and of the challenges and opportunities for future research. It should also be helpful to graduate students in plant pathology and related disciplines."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Research workers from countries including the UK, USA, Australia, Israel and India provide reviews of relevant research covering the major tropical crops, and include general chapters on principles, ecology and control. Topics include soilborne diseases of cereal crops, food legumes, root and tuber
crops, vegetable crops, bananas and plantains, citrus, beverage crops and palms, annual oilseed crops, sugarcane, cotton and tropical fibers, and rubber; associations between soilborne pathogens and other soil-inhabiting microorganisms; effect of cultivation practices and cropping systems on
soilborne diseases, and chemical and biological control."--SciTech Book News
