Now established worldwide as the standard guide to the recognition and understanding of the causes of deterioration in temperate and tropical fruits and vegetables, these superbly illustrated full-colour volumes deal clearly, concisely and systematically with each of the main diseases and disorders, emphasising those of importance to international trade.

Diseases are broken down into four sections: occurrence, symptoms, biology, and control. The introductory section illustrates the diseases and disorders and the agents of those diseases. Students of plant pathology will find the technical explanations clear and the quantity of colour photographs an added benefit. Anyone involved in the commercial production, shipping, import, or marketing of fruit will find this book valuable.
