This volume consists of 85 chapters that highlight recent advances in our knowledge of the viruses that infect plants and fungi. It begins with general topics in plant virology including movement of viruses in plants, the transmission of plant viruses by vectors, and the development of virus-resistant transgenic plants. The second section presents an overview of the properties of a selection of 20 well-studied plant viruses, 23 plant virus genera and a few larger groups of plant viruses. The third section, which is abundantly illustrated, highlights the most economically important virus diseases of cereals, legumes, vegetable crops, fruit trees and ornamentals. The last section describes the major groups of viruses that infect fungi. This is the most comprehensive single-volume source providing an overview of virology to non-specialists. It bridges the gap between basic undergraduate texts and specialized reviews. It offers concise and general overviews of important topics within the field that will help when preparing for lectures, writing reports, or drafting grant applications.
