Molecular plant pathology has directly benefited from advances in modern molecular techniques. These techniques have been applied both to pathogens and plants, enhancing our understanding of the organisms themselves and of the complex interactions which determine compatability between them andtheir host plants. This volume and its companion together provide the first comprehensive guide to the latest molecular techniques as well as the established approaches to the subject. Researchers in plant science, molecular biology, and related areas will find the two volumes of Molecular Plant Pathology to be aninvaluable experimental resource for this exciting and fast-moving field, providing a wealth of easy to follow protocols supported by expert advice and guidance.

Editorial Reviews

'As in Volume I the brief but detailed introduction to the individual special areas are supplemented by a total of 111 (!) detailed case reports which account for the special value of this book. Given the amount of information and the attractive presentation the price of the book iscomparatively cheap. It is thoroughly to be recommended to phytopathologists or microbiologists who are interested in the basic principles and methodology of microbiology.'Schriftleitung Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkranheiten und Pflanzenschutz.
