From Foreword: The Diseases and Disorders of Plants in Florida represents an authoritative, comprehensive compilation of diseases and disorders of plants known to occur in the State of Florida. 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.
