There is a student resources website organized around the book’s topics that will help bring the stories of plant diseases to life through podcasts, exercises, and other teaching tools. For those teaching with this book, there is an instructor’s-only web interface with resources that will be your course guide throughout the semester. Anyone interested in science, environmental issues, food production, or sustainability will find this book fascinating.Book Specifications and Data©2012; 8" x 10" softcover; 304 pages; 75 line drawings; 93 photos; 2 pounds; ISBN 978-0-89054-399-3
