Dr. Tsuneo Watanabe is an invited research scientist at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of Japan. He received his B.A. from the University of Tokyo in 1961 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in plant pathology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1964 and 1967. Dr. Watanabe was active as a plant pathologist and mycologist in the field of soil-borne diseases, their pathogens, and soil fungi at the National Institute of Agro-Environmental Sciences, Forestry, and Forest Products Research Institute of Japan for 30 years. Upon retirement, he engaged in one of the national projects at AIST for five years, and subsequently worked continuously as an invited research scientist.
Praise for the Second Edition: "! presents a large amount of work collected systematically over a long period of time. !Dr. Watanabe shares his experience acquired as a plant pathologist and mycologist specialized in soil and similar fungi over a long period of time. !will soon become a standard reference in mycological libraries." --Liliane E. Petrini, Comano, Switzerland, in Sydowia 54 (2) December 2002 "! a useful tool for all involved in mycological studies." --Journal of Plant Pathology (2002), 84 (2) "The methods presented, which have been worked out experimentally, are some of the best methods, particularly for culture maintenance, that this reviewer has ever seen in print !Each specimen is very ably illustrated with one to six photographs of outstanding quality, which should allow easy identification !All in all, an outstanding book for individuals interested in soil and seed fungi or for plant pathologists." --J.
