Seed Microbiology Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Histopathology of Seed-Borne Infections

by Dalbir Singh
and S. B Mathur


Histopathology of Seed-Borne Infections is the first book to provide comprehensive coverage of seed infection and disease. It includes an up-to-date account on the development and structure of seed, pointing out the structural variations in seeds of the plant families to which most crop plants belong.

Histopathology of Seed-Borne Infections presents techniques and advice for histopathological studies, as well as a discussion on physiogenic seed disorders and the penetration of ovule/seed by fungi.

Features:

  • Includes separate chapters on seed-borne microorganisms (fungi, bacteria, viruses, nematodes) and their diseases
  • Covers the penetration of ovule/seed by fungi
  • Discusses physiogenic seed disorders
  • Provides common techniques and tips for histopathological studies
