Senior author, Dr. S. A. Sal Alfieri, Jr., with important assistance from Drs. K. R. Langdon, J. W. Kimbrough, N. E. El-Gholl, and C. Wehlburg, spent countless hours revising the 1984 Index of Plant Diseases in Florida into this greatly expanded publication...Florida, with its subtropical/tropical climate and wide variety of flora, provides a favorable enviornment for a broad spectrum of plant diseases. The cataloging of this information is important to diagnostic and research plant pathologists as well as horticulturists and county extension specialists, concerning the availability of a ready reference of disease/host occurrences.

2 Andrews, Henry N. The Fossil Hunters: In Search of Ancient Plants.
Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1980. First Edition, Review Copy, with Publisher's Note Laid-In. 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 421 pp. Very Good+, with neat former-owner stamp & foxing to page edges, in a Near-Fine dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From jacket: Drawing upon forty years of knowledge and experience, Henry N. Andrews examines the history ofpaleobotany (the study of fossil plants) with an eye for the people who were instrumental in making that history -- the fossil hunters themselves. In addition to discussing the work of many renowned scientists, Andrews emphasizes the significant contributions of nonprofessionals. Andrews traces the growth of paleobotany over much of the globe, from the late 1600s to the present. Discussing the work accomplished by several naturalists in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries...he shows how the struggles of these men made possible the more respected work of the early nineteenth century. He then turns to the development of paleobotany in different countries and areas, treating fist Britain and then India, and going on to concentrate on the growth of fossil botany in the United States and Canada starting in the 1820s. He also includes a chapter on the work of fossil hunters in Belgium, France, and Holland, and chapters covering research conducted in Central Europe, Scandinavia and the Arctic, and the Soviet Union.

Newton: David & Charles, (1979). 
Royal octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 144 pp. Near-Fine, with neat former-owner stamp, in a Fine dust jacket. From jacket: The first practical guide to tree surgery reflects a growing concern for the future of one of mankind's most precious assets....Aimed primarily at those studying, practising, supervising or managing tree surgery operations, this detailed survey is of use too to allied professionals, and of interest to tree owners in general who wish to understand the principles of securing their trees so that they can inelligently employ others. Peter Bridgeman, the first ever full-time lecturer in arboriculture in the United Kingdom...advises that the tree surgeon, before commencing work, must decide on the needs and the best methods of operation, and the body of his book deals with the objectives behind various actions as well as how best to perform them. Early chapters provide an appreciation of tree growth, the law, education and the safety aspects of tree surger. Tools, equipment, materials and chemicals used are also covered in some depth. The final chapters look at contract tree work and show how trees can be protected on development sites. Illustrated with over 40 monochrome photographs and 30 line drawings, Tree Surgery is a much-needed guide to a vitally important topic.
