About the book
This book aims to elucidate the threats of Phytophthora as one of phytopathogens worldwide, where it causes a great damage to crops and other plants and therefore leads to high economic losses. Moreover, this book includes the recent geographical distribution of Phytophthora worldwide, the most common diseases which have been established, identification of Phytophthora using classical methods as well as molecular determination including that of pathogenic determinants, eco-friendly biocontrol of Phytophthora, complex infection of plants due to Phytophthora-plant pathogen co-infection, and finally, the effect of metals on saprophytic growth of Phytophthora.
This book intends to be a guideline for sustainable agriculture worldwide and a great push in the development of biocontrol approach. The chapters of this book will include the main factors, influence, prevalence and virulence progressing of Phytophthora especially in the cold regions worldwide. Reversible and irreversible mutations and their sites should be elucidated to enable biocontrol without adverse events.
