Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have mentioned to numerous undergraduate and graduate students during the past two decades that plant pathologists are indeed fortunate to have the text Plant Pathology by George N. Agrios as an accessible, comprehensive reference on many aspects of phytopathology...The content of the fifth edition (922 pages) represents a significant expansion of content from the fourth edition (635 pages)...there are numerous new sections within individual chapters. Revised chapters contain significant expansion of text, figures, and photographs. A new feature of the book is shaded text boxes that contain brief articles of separate but related topics...Overall, the extensive use of color in the fifth edition readily accomplishes 'the author's dream to have all the figures in color' and is a welcome addition to this new edition...The comprehensive index to the text is very helpful as topics, pathogens, and diseases are all cross-indexed...Overall, the fifth edition is a welcome addition to the literature on plant pathology, and is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this area of study."
-G.J. Boland, University of Guelph, in AGRICULTURE, ECOSYSTEMS & ENVIRONMENT

"Plant Pathology by George Agrios is a comprehensive treatise for those within or coming into this field. The fifth edition is partially built on the compilations of the previous editions, however, like following Dorothy from the black and white of Kansas to the color land of Oz, the addition of color has dramatically enhanced the clarity of photos and diagrams. This change is important for correctly identifying the plant disease symptoms. The photos, diagrams and text can be understood by readers ranging from master gardeners to basic researchers. The book's past reputation as the plant pathology "bible" is definitely enhanced and the price remains reasonable...With this book as a text, no excuse remains for a poorly taught plant pathology course."
- Lee Hadwiger for PLANT SCIENCE

"This has become a very comprehensive book that every plant pathologist should have for reference. All students should be familiar with this book and it should be a part of their educational experience.” - Patrick E. Lipps, Ohio State University

"Agrios' text is the standard introductory work for the discipline of plant pathology. There is no single volume which matches it for breadth of topics and detail of coverage.” - Jeanne D. Mihail, University of Missouri

Praise for the previous edition:
"...a classic textbook embracing the whole of plant pathology, ideal for undergraduate courses and for those associated with research and practice of applied plant pathology in all climatic regions. The new, larger format and extensive use of high quality illustrations (including colour plates) and the widespread use of annotated flow diagrams to show pathogen life cycles, the gene-for-gene concept, forecasting of epidemics and procedures for isolation and culture of pathogens are all exceedingly well done. I recommend this book highly for teaching and reference."
- EXPERIMENTAL AGRICULTURE

Well those questions are explored to some extent in this book.

I recommend it as a reference for anyone wanting to study the science of plant pathology in detail.

This book is pretty good, and I ordered a used one, but I got a totally new one with plasmic bag.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent introduction to plant pathology and the kind of book one tends to hold onto to use as a reference after finishing their coursework. I have known plenty of graduate students who've held onto their copies, and I've really never heard any serious criticisms of this book. The coverage is broad, and it will serve as a useful, interesting and highly readable reference for those with interests in bacteriology, virology, mycology, botany and a variety of other fields that overlap with aspects of plant pathology. Typically when I rate textbooks I am fairly harsh because the cost is generally high while contents often leave much to be desired. In my opinion this book is an exception, and I think the cost reasonably reflects the value of the information contained.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jose Amador on October 9, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is by far the best reference on the subject of Plant Pathology. It will be useful not only to plant pathologists, but to other plant scientists and biologists as well. George has done an excellent job in bringing his now famous textbook up to date. I have many books on Plant Pathology; this is by far the best. The fifth edition includes many new pictures and drawings to illustrate the concepts relating to diseases of plants. Plus many new sections dealing with the state-of-art of this science. George says this will probably be the last edition he will write. What a way to cap such an illustrious career!

Format: Hardcover
I have been out of Phytopathology since the fall of 1971. Over the years I have; from time to time; skimmed journals like Mycologia and Phytopathology. So the old urge came back and I bought this text on the recommendation of a friend.

This is an excellent text book on general plant pathology. The scope is extensive and I was delighted that a goodly portion of the book explores host pathogen interactions with a microbiological slant. My late, learned, and very noble professor, Dr. R. K. Hegde would have been thrilled to no end considering that the book generally follows his outlines of PL-PATH 600. Dr. Hegde Sir, whereever you are, remember that seminar in May 1968 on the basidiomycetous Fungi with Dr. C.S.Holton in the audience and your passioned pleas for more biochem data? Well those questions are explored to some extent in this book.

If you have any interest in biology, microbiology, biochemistry, or plant science get this book. Most definitely a classic.

Agrios has upgraded and improved his classic Plant Pathology textbook. I own the 4th edition, and I was uncertain at first if I should buy the 5th edition. It was defintely worth it. Not only is there considerable new information, there are also many more helpful pictures and diagrams. Plus, many of the old graphics that appeared in black and white in the 4th edition are in color in the 5th edition. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
This new edition of Plant Pathology by George Agrios is great. Full color graphics and pictures made easy to understand many simptoms on plant diseases. Book structure and chapters has few changes. An aditional attemption on Plant Pathology History and some new technical features on Mol. Biology added. This is an easy understanding and basic book all Phytopatologyst must have as a basic tool for teaching or reading.

I purchased this required textbook for a graduate-level plant pathology class. The progression of information is very good (it builds upon previous chapters) but there are a lot of typos, which can be distracting.
