Laboratory Guide for Identification of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria, Third Edition
Edited by NW Schaad, JB Jones, W Chun
spiral-bound 398 pages, 68 col photos, 9 b+w illus ISBN 0890542635
This decade has seen many advances in plant pathogenic bacteria identification, most
notably polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This book features a list of available PCR primers
and an appendix on Molecular Techniques. Nomenclatural changes included in this manual make
identification of most plant pathogenic bacteria much easier. Many species have been given genus
status and many pathovars have been returned to species rank. Each chapter in this book provides a description
of the nomenclature and taxonomy being followed and a flow chart to aid in identification of plant pathogen
genera is included.
To assist readers in correctly identifying bacteria, the Laboratory Guide for Identification of Plant
Pathogenic Bacteria, Third Edition includes simplified methods, color photographs of biochemical results,
full descriptive methods and a list of semiselective agar media useful for isolating bacteria. This guidebook
will be a useful resource for educators, students, researchers, extension personnel, diagnosticians or anyone
involved in identifying plant bacterial diseases.
Use the updated information in this comprehensive, standardized lab guide to easily and accurately
identify plant pathogenic bacteria.
