This book is a practical manual to aid identification of Phoma species, and will be useful for researchers working in the areas of mycology, plant pathology and microbiology. It provides line drawings and keys for the identification of 223 specific and infraspecific taxa of Phoma, including common pathogenic and saprophytic species, with references to additional diagnostic literature, representative cultures and documentation of the numerous synonyms formerly used in the mycological and phytopathological literature.
