Apple Proliferation

Cover Apple Proliferation. A Joint ReviewApple Proliferation. A Joint Review

Edited by Katrin Janik, Dana Barthel, Tiziana Oppedisano, Gianfranco Anfora

The anthology summarises the results of more than six years of research and experimental work within the framework of projects carried out by the Laimburg Research Centre and the Fondazione Edmund Mach funded by the Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano, Italy, the South Tyrolean Apple Consortium, and the Association of Fruit and Vegetable Producers in Trentino (APOT).

With numerous detailed contributions, the 25 authors offer an overview of the state of the art of apple proliferation - one of the most harmful phytoplasmoses for the extensive apple growing areas in Trentino-Alto Adige.

The work combines the knowledge and resources of both research institutes and underlines the diversity of the technical and scientific backgrounds of the researchers involved, such as bacteriology, plant physiology, entomology and environmental sciences at molecular, macroscopic and geographical level.

The volume can be viewed and downloaded free of charge:
