Plant Pathology and Disease Control

This field is also known as plant pathology, which is a scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens or environmental conditions. The organisms that cause infectious disease in plants include oomycetes, fungi, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Not included are ectoparasites like mites, vertebrate, insects or other pests that affect plant health by consumption of plant tissues. It also includes the study of disease cycles, economic impact, plant disease epidemiology, plant disease resistance, pathogen identification, disease etiology, how plant diseases affect humans and animals, pathosystem genetics, and management of plant diseases.
