The 50 video clips on this DVD will delight teacher and student alike. The wonder of biology is clearly evident in these hand-picked sequences and will help you create compelling presentations that will fascinate and educate your students. Ever since the The Biology of Fungal Pathogens Video Series became available, professors have wanted to use specific clips from the videos for their class PowerPoint™ presentations…now it’s possible! This new DVD has 50 clips from all eight videos in the series. Many of the intriguing ways that fungal parasites interact with their plant hosts are artistically magnified and brought to life in these 50 video clips. The ingenious animations of fungal biology in these clips replace the humdrum and lifeless life-cycle diagrams that were the teaching tools of the past. This totally convenient format allows you to import bits of brilliant animation into presentations, reinforcing your teaching with vibrant illustrations of fungal biology.
Although the clips may certainly be used to teach details of specific important diseases of cereal crops, they are also especially desirable for use in general biology classes, as well as for classes in plant pathology and mycology. Cooperative Extension educators will be able to use these clips as highlights in their presentations to commercial growers and in Master Gardener training.The 55-page booklet that comes with the DVD will help you to choose the perfect video segments of topics you would like to demonstrate to your students: formation of sexual and asexual fungus spores, fungal attacks on plants, epidemic development, haustorium formation, and disease resistance, for example. The voice-over narration gives the story; replays without the soundtrack can be used to emphasize the points appropriate to the individual instructor’s purposes. By so vividly illustrating interesting stories on fungal biology, these clips will greatly help students to grasp complex principles and new scientific vocabulary.

"This clip collection is a treasure trove for the teacher who understands that many different media are necessary to keep students engaged and learning. These illustrations will lock in a student’s understanding of material studied in textbooks by giving them a particularly vivid visual demonstration of structures and their functions. The interactions between fungi and plants come alive via the artistry of these clips."-- Margery Daughtrey, Editor-in-Chief, APS PRESS
