Diagnosis and Prognosis of the Development of Wood Decay

Diagnosis and Prognosis of the Development of Wood Decay

Readers who have attended workshops conducted by Prof. Dr. Francis W.M.R. Schwarze and read his seminal work: Fungal Strategies of Wood Decay in Trees will be familiar with his research on trees and fungi. In Diagnosis and Prognosis of the Development of Wood Decay in Urban Trees, Prof. Dr. Francis W.M.R. Schwarze deftly and expertly takes the reader from the macro to the micro level explaining the complexity of the interactions between trees, fungi and the environment. Readers need not be concerned that a high level of scientific knowledge is required to understand the scientific principles and examples described in the book; the book is written in simple language and illustrated with numerous Figures and Tables to help the non-scientist understand. The improvements and developments in the assessment and management of risks highlight many of the problems facing arboriculturists and tree care workers. The diverse studies and research that is developing in arboriculture has inspired many innovative approaches to establishing diagnostic techniques. This book helps bring all of these together to help us understand the structure of trees, and their interactions with fungi and the environment. ©2008 Hardback 328 pp.
