This compendium consists of two main sections: diseases of forest trees, listing a vast number of diseases afflicting a wide variety of conifers, organized by type of disease; and diseases which occur in the forest, organized by region, including Europe, India, Australia, Africa, and sections of North America. The final, smallest, section lists diseases in settings such as forest tree nurseries, Christmas tree plantations, and horticultural landscapes. Abundant color plates.
