View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The two closely related species of Potato Cyst-Nematodes (PCN), Globodera rostochiensis (Woll.) and Globodera pallida Stone have a worldwide distribution. Both are internationally recognized plant quarantine organisms of actual or potential major economic importance wherever potatoes are grown or traded. They occur in large soil masses and also adhere to potato tubers as microscopic cysts, which represent a complex of morphologically identical, but behaviorally different virulence groups, or pathotypes. This presents major problems for their detection, identification and management.

This book is a synthesis of current practical knowledge and underpinning scientific research on PCN globally. It is arranged in five sections, comprising 19 chapters by leading practitioners and research nematologists, in which the biology, detection, identification and control options (including plant resistance) for PCN are examined. In addition, its worldwide status is considered, including South America, where PCN co-evolved with its potato host. Essential information is provided for professionals and advanced students of plant nematology and crop protection.

Review:


"Synthesizing current practical knowledge and global research on potato cyst nematodes (PCN), leading nematodologists and other expert contributors address multiple aspects of the internationally recognized plant-quarantine organisms of the two closely related potato cyst nematodes: /Globodera rostochiensis/ and /Globodera pallida/. The 19 chapters comprise five sections on the biology, detection, identification, and control options (including engineering plant resistance) for PCN. Their origin in South America, where PCN co-evolved with their potato host, and worldwide distribution is mapped and discussed. Includes eight color plates and b&w illustrations of aspects of potato cultivation and PCN infestation."--SciTech Book News
