TitleAn illustrated guide to the state of health of trees: recognition and interpretation of symptoms and damage
CreatorBoa, Eric
DescriptionThis illustrated guide was published in 2003 and made available on the Web by FAO. It provides 140 photographs of symptoms from more than 50 tree species to be used as a basis for demonstrating the effects of pest (biotic) and non-living (abiotic) influences on trees. It is not an identification guide to insect pests and diseases of trees, but aims to help people make visual assessments of tree health problems and to provide a preliminary diagnosis which in turn will assist in better planning and more effective management of forests and trees. The guide will be useful to anyone interested in tree health or responsible for managing trees.
