About the book

The book Trichoderma aims to assist in the integrated management of plant diseases with applications in all cultivation systems (including vegetables, cereals, oilseeds and fruit trees). Parasitism, identification of species, ultrastructure and molecular aspects (uses of SSR and snips techniques) of the interaction of the biocontrol agent and the seeds, roots and the phyllosphere will also be discussed, taking into account all the modalities of use of this important and versatile microorganism. Aspects of its application involving products and their formulations for use by farmers, as well as management tactics involving other biocontrol agents such as bacteria, use of organic matter, vegetation cover and resistant or tolerant varieties for some pathosystem will also be addressed.

The book will discuss integrated management of plant diseases and plant protection, with an emphasis on phytopathogenic fungi, biocontrol, plant genetics and resistance.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
