Department of Plant Pathology Madison Ave. Wooster, Ohio Phone: Email: [email protected] Epidemiology can be considered, quite simply, the study of epidemics. There are several possible definitions of an epidemic. We define an epidemic as the change in disease intensity in a host population over time and space. Plant disease, an impairment of the normal state of a plant that interrrupts or modifies its vital functions. Plant diseases can be classified as infectious or noninfectious, depending on the causative agent. Learn more about the importance, transmission, diagnosis, and control of plant diseases.

Plant Diseases: Epidemics and Control provides a description of the methods of epidemiological analysis based on infection rates and the relation between the amount of inoculum and the amount of disease it produces. The book shows how to study the increase of pathogen populations and the epidemiological strategy to be adopted to control the. Plant disease epidemics, caused by established and invasive pathogen species, continue to impact a world increasingly concerned with the quantity and quality of its primary food supply. The Study. The Study of Plant Disease Epidemics should be in all biological libraries and on the shelf of any researcher who has occasion to analyze epidemiological data. It would serve as an excellent text for graduate courses in plant disease epidemiology, especially those organized around models. An epidemic has been defined as any increase of disease in a population. A similar definition of an epidemic is the dynamics of change in plant disease in time and space. The study of epidemics and factors influencing them is called epidemiology. Epidemiology is concerned simultaneously with.

Introduction S tudying plant diseases in a particular plant population is known as plant disease epidemiology (PDE) (Nutter, ). Plant diseases are caused by the vast circle of diversified pathogens which continuously tend to undergo mutations and recombination, thus generating their new strains efficiently for their survival in the ecosystem (Ventura et al., ; Cangi et al., ).   The book: “Epidemics and Society: From the Black Death to ” by Frank M. Snowden was quite timely and informative as the world deals with a new pandemic denoted as COVID The book was an outgrowth and expansion of an open course taught at Yale, completed before but updated to make note of the current s: Description: Plant disease epidemiology is a dynamic science that forms an essential part of the study of plant pathology. This book brings together a team of 35 international experts. Each chapter deals with an essential component of the subject and allows the reader to fully understand how each exerts its influence on the progress of.
