Phytoplasma Diseases in Asian Countries: Characterization, Epidemiology and Management is the third volume in the Phytoplasma Diseases in Asian Countries series dedicated to the analysis of plant pathogens across Asia. Highlighting genomic studies and molecular approaches for rapid detection of phytoplasma diseases, the book discusses effective control measures for insect vectors across Asia. The chapters in this book discuss the latest biological controls and how best to manage and even eliminate phytoplasma diseases. This is an essential read for students, researchers and agriculturalists interested in plant pathology. Phytoplasma are microorganisms that are transmitted by insect vectors, infecting various different types of annuals and perennials and causing serious damage to crops across Asia.

Author Biography

Dr. Ajay K. Tiwari is working as Principal Scientific Officer for the U.P. Council of Sugarcane Research, India. He received his PhD in 2011 on Cucurbit viruses from the Biotechnology department of CCS University, Meerut, India. Dr Tiwari is a regular member of the British Society of Plant Pathology, Indian Phytopathological Society, Sugarcane Technologists Association of India, International Society of Sugarcane Technologists, Society of Sugarcane Research and Promotion, Prof H S Srivastava Foundation, and the Society of Plant Research. He has published 45 research articles, 7 review articles in national and International journals, 3 book chapters in edited books and also submitted more than 120 nucleotide sequences of plant pathogens in Genbank to his credit. He is editor in Chief of Agrica Journal. Kenro Oshima is a Professor of Plant Pathology at the Hosei University, Japan. He has 20 years of research experience in the field of plant pathology, especially the genomes and pathogenicity of phytoplasmas. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of General Plant Pathology. He has published more than 60 peer reviewed articles in international journals and has delivered numerous oral and poster presentations at national and international meetings. He received the Kitamoto Award from the Japanese Society of Mycoplasmology in 2018. Dr Amit Yadav is a scientist at the NCCS, India. He has over 8 years' experience in the fields of phytoplasma biology, microbial diversity and applied microbiology with more than 35 research publications. He is a member of the editorial board of Phytopathogenic Mollicutes and has presented at several international conferences. His main research interests are epidemiology, genomics and taxonomy of phytoplasmas. Dr Seyyed Alireza Esmailzadeh Hosseini is the Head of the Yazd Agricultural and Natural Resources Research and Education Center, and an Assistant Professor in Plant Protection. His research focuses on phytoplasmas of plants in Iran. Yupa Hanboonsong is a Thai entomologist, specializing in entomophagy (the use of insects as food). She received her PhD in insect systematics from Lincoln University in New Zealand, and currently works as an associate professor in the entomology department at Khon Kaen University, Thailand. The effects on Thailand of the 1997 Asian financial crisis prompted her to train rice farmers in remote areas of the country to farm crickets as a cheap and plentiful nutrition source. She has co-authored several reports on insect farming for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Dr Lakhanpaul is a Professor in the Botany Department, Delhi University, India. She received her PhD in Plant Genetics and has over 20 years of experience in the field of plant science. Her research interests include plant molecular genetics, molecular analysis of biodiversity and plant-insect-endosymbiont interactions.
