"Plant protection is an inegral part of crop production activities in multi-component agricultural system. Much has been written on the principles and practices of plant protection for insect-pests and disease management but the clear-cut understanding of the technical terms has not been described. The above problem including the definition aspect has been solved in this glossary by way of describing the terms in simple and lucid manner. Attempts have also been made to describe some of the technical terms used in different ways in different sciences such as Entomology, Nematology, Plant Pathology, Phytobacteriology, Phytovirology, Mycology, Microbiology, Mushroomology, Phytonematology and Weed Science. The aim of this glossary is to provide the definition and elaboration of more than 4500 technical terms of plant protection sciences to the students. It will guide the research workers, graduate and senior under-graduate students of plant protection who desire a catch up test on plant protection." (jacket)
