Fungi on plants and plant products in the United States.

Abstract

The aims of this book are to provide a comprehensive account of fungi reported on plants and plant products on a state or regional basis, with brief notes on the diseases they cause (>78 000 fungus-host combinations are documented), to serve as a reference for accepted names of the fungi, to serve as a guide to the literature and to aid in the identification of fungi on plants and plant products in the USA. The book is divided into 3 main sections: the host-fungus list (host families are arranged alphabetically and fungi reported on each host are listed), the fungus list (fungi reported in the host-fungus list are arranged alphabetically by genus) and literature cited. A host index, host common name index and fungus index are appended. Finally there is a list of authors of fungal names, in which authorities are listed in alphabetical order.
