This classic reference, first published in 1987, has been completely revised and updated. More than 2,200 digitally optimized color images enhance the photographs and drawings that illustrate the content. The clarity of the photographs combined with text that surveys the diseases of forest and ornamental trees and shrubs in the United States and Canada, make this authoritative volume an extraordinary diagnostic tool in the field. A searchable CD-ROM containing a bibliography accompanies the work. Gardeners with some knowledge of biological sciences will want to study this book when encountering signs of plant distress in their gardens. Invaluable for tree professionals.
