This monograph aids in the identification and study of fungi in the Cryphonectriaceae. Numerous studies revising the taxonomy of Cryphonectria or reporting on new hosts of these fungi have been published during the course of the past decade. The aim of this book is to draw together all recent and relevant information relating to the Cryphonectriaceae in one volume. This will considerably enhance the ability of plant pathologists, mycologists, and forest scientists to identify the important fungi residing in this Cryphonectriaceae family. The DNA database, keys, and descriptions for all Cryphonectria species and related taxa will also enhance the ability of those involved in quarantine regulations to recognize these fungi and help to reduce the chance of their accidental introduction into new areas.
“…this very clear book should act as an important and useful reference for many plant pathologists and arborists throughout the world for some time to come.”-- Microbiology Today
“… provides plenty of information on taxonomy and ecology of the members of the Cryphonectriaceae family… will be very useful to mycologists and phytopathologists especially those working in tropic and subtropics countries.”-- Czech Mycology
“…contains valuable information provided by good descriptions and illustrations as photographs and drawings. Many mycologists will find it useful and illuminating. The scope of literature used in the study is impressive and the quality of book design is excellent.”-- Inoculum
“Without any question this book will be greatly welcomed by plant pathologists and should be present in all libraries concerned with forestry, dendrology, and plant protection.”-- Journal of Plant Protection Research
"... a nice identification manual and general knowledge source for this important group of fungal pathogens...provides a compact but comprehensive reference and identification manual for pathologists, quarantine personnel and taxonomists to this economically important fungal family. Written by the unquestioned experts in the field, its publication will be widely welcomed."--P. F. Cannon
