Phytophthora Infestans, the Cause of Late Blight of Potato
This special volume of Advances in Plant Pathology is devoted to the pathogen Phytophthora infestans. Due to its devastating effects on potato crops, this pathogen has been the cause of major famines and affected the lives of millions of people. Consequently, research on Phytophthora infestans has been of major concern to plant pathologists and it will play an increasing role in plant pathological research in the future.
