Women in Plant Pathology

Maria Lodovica Gullino: Agroinnova - University of Torino

<div>This review will document the contributions to our discipline of the many women scientists who worked in this field since the beginning. The review will acknowledge the often obscure work of many women who contributed significantly to the advancement of plant pathology. Special attention will be given to plant pathologists in developing countries whose daily work resulted in effective plant disease management, and yields from healthy crops that increased a scarce food supply. Programmes and initiatives for attracting more women in science, with special reference to plant pathology, will be mentioned. It is the author’s hope that in the near future it will not be necessary to distinguish men and women plant pathologists, but rather the contributions all who whose work is significant to the advancement of the discipline.</div>
