Plant Pathology by Stephen Burchett,Sarah Burchett Pdf

Plant Pathology explores the topic of plant pathology and aligns classic studies and knowledge in the topic with the current state of research, in an accessible format. The text is supported by summary tables of key information and, where appropriate, schematic diagrams to reinforce difficult concepts such as the process of disease infection, cell-to-cell recognition, and plant breeding mechanisms used to develop resistant cultivars. The compendium of diseases focuses on important and major economic disease organisms from a number of crop and ornamental plants, including a dedicated section on fruit crops. The compendium is supported by original photographs, photomicrographs and electron micrographs of key pathogens and the development of structures such as the haustoria and the hypha, and show processes of cellular degradation. The section on applied disease management contains short case studies highlighting key disease organisms affecting the crops of a range of growers, illustrating the environment, disease symptoms and control strategies these growers are currently using to mitigate loss of production.

Daffodils in American Gardens, 1733-1940 by Sara L. Van Beck Pdf

A multifaceted history of daffodils and the historic and modern gardens they have called home Since their earliest identification in the mid-1500s, more than twenty-eight thousand hybrid daffodils have been named and registered with the Royal Horticulture Society of England. Daffodils began as wildflowers in the Mediterranean basin, then spread and flourished in Europe's alpine and coastal environments. Sara L. Van Beck, an attentive historian and skilled horticulturist, traces the history of the garden daffodil including its early days in Europe, especially the Netherlands; the importation of flowering bulbs to colonial America; and plant breeding and the dissemination of plants throughout the United States until World War II. Illustrated with nearly two hundred color and black-and-white images, Daffodils in American Gardens examines gardening by era--European beginnings; colonial, federal, antebellum, and Victorian periods; and World War II--with a comprehensive chapter for daffodils in cemetery plantings. Van Beck combines the disparate disciplines of archaeology and plant science to discover and re-create important gardens in the United States. Combining primary research from a variety of rare publications, especially nursery catalogs and seed lists, she integrates old and new scientific botany by correlating older, uncertain scientific terms, common names for the daffodil, and modern taxonomies. Historic and modern botanical illustrations embellish the volume and complement Van Beck's narrative. Case studies of surviving historic gardens from the early Republic era to the twentieth century examine how old daffodils have survived the vagaries of time. Van Beck surveys historic properties in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. This multifaceted history, examining high style, vernacular, and commercial landscape architecture, is geared toward general gardeners interested in heirloom plants and historic gardens. Moreover, extensive endnotes and a comprehensive bibliography document extensive references for professionals working in historic landscapes preservation and garden restoration.
