All aerial plant surfaces are inhabited by diverse assemblages of microorganisms. These organisms have profound effects on plant health and thus impact on ecosystem and agricultural functions. This book is based on proceedings from the 8th International Symposium on the microbiology of aerial plant surfaces, held in Oxford 2005. This conference held every 5 years provides a unique opportunity for scientists.

Of interest to microbiology (mycology, bacteriology), plant physiology and crop protection.
