In Australia attention is being paid to the sustainability and health of eucalypt forests and woodlands. There has been increasing recognition that eucalypts are vulnerable to a wide range of diseases, and destructive disease epidemics, particularly of dieback caused by the cinnamon fungus and of foliar diseases of plantations. This has stimulated intensive research into the causes and management of diseases of the eucalypts. This is a comprehensive review of health and diseases of eucalypts.

" ... remarkable for its breath of coverage and a refreshing change from many surveys of pathogens of particular crops as a result. ... A must for those actively involved in the establishment and management of eucalypt plantations within their native areas and worldwide."-- (04/01/2002) "Much has been written about different eucalypt diseases, but now, for the first time, we have a comprehensive, multi-authored manual that draws all this material together into one convenient compendium. ... The contributors of this meticulous work are to be congratulated on producing an attractive, handy and valuable reference book, which promises to remain a classic text for many years to come. In drawing attention to gaps in our present knowledge it well also undoubtedly function as a guide to future research directions and the promotion of eucalypt health."-- (01/01/2001) "This well-written, beautifully illustrated, carefully organized book thoroughly covers both eucalyptus diseases and a great deal of basic biology and management information for this complex, highly variable, and increasingly important genus."--D.F. Karnosky, Michigan Technological University"Choice" (04/01/2001) "This work represents a comprehensive review of our current knowledge of the health and diseases of eucalypts."-- (01/01/2002)
