Illustrated Genera of Rust Fungi of Brazil


  • BRIT Press Botanical Research Institute of Texas



From the Publisher: Illustrated Genera of Rust Fungi of Brazil presents up-to-date information about the genera
of rusts fungi known for Brazil. Included are 65 plates of detailed black and white photos representing 62
genera. This number represents approximately one-half of all of the known genera of rust fungi in the world.
Results are based on many large scale surveys and field collecting expeditions in Brazil and supplemented with
herbarium records. The largest portion of this book is the descriptive flora of the 62 genera, i.e., descriptions,
and taxonomic treatments of rust fungi genera, arranged alphabetically by genera and species. Sixty-one genera
are treated as holomorphs and 13 as anamorph genera. The most important practical results of taxonomic
research on these parasitic and pathogenic rust fungi are products such as complete descriptions and illustrations
of symptoms and signs, and other aids such as host indices and keys. These products help scientists and
students to identify species of rusts. This book is aimed at students and professionals who are fascinated with
rusts and their pathogenic fungi.
