This book is a comprehensive compilation of all those issues related to ecological, morphological, pathogenic and molecular diversity in phytopathogens, conservation of microbial biodiversity, estimation and exploration of microbial diversity for agricultural sustainability, role of microbial diversity in biodegradation of organic pollutants and heavy metals under rhizosphere ecosystem contribution of rhizosphere microorganisms to plant health and agriculture, microbial community in rhizosphere and their impact on plant biology, microbial diversification in the rhizopshere soil, diversity and role of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria in agricultural crops, plant quarantine and the international exchange of microbial biodiversity, insects-microbes association, biodiversity and ecological distribution of nematophagous fungi, morphological and molecular diagnosis of phytopathogens, genetic variability and management of phytopathogens causing diseases in crop plants, utilization of molecular tools and techniques for studying soil microbial diversity, exploitation of soil microbial diversity for disease suppression, crop production and sustainable agriculture, which are useful for undergraduate and post graduate students, research scholars, scientists working in the areas of Agriculture, Botany, Micorbiology and Plant Pathology.

Dr. (Mrs.) Asha Sinha is Professor in the Department of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. Prof. Sinha has obtained her Master’s degree in the subject of Botany and therefore her Doctoral degree in 1979 from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. She joined the Department of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, B.H.U. as Lecturer in 1981. Apart from teaching, Prof. Sinha has been engaged with independent research and guiding students for M.Sc. and Doctoral degree programmes.
Dr. Seweta Srivastava is currently working as Post Doctoral Fellow in the U.P. Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, in Plant pathology in 2009. She also qualified ICAR-NET in Plant Pathology and Crop Protection.
