Plant Pathology

Plant pathology is the scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens (infectious organisms) and environmental conditions (physiological factors). Plant pathology also involves the study of pathogen identification, disease etiology, disease cycles, economic impact, plant disease epidemiology, plant disease resistance, how plant diseases affect humans and animals, pathosystem genetics, and management of plant diseases. Plant pathology is an applied science that deals with the nature, causes and control of plant diseases in agriculture and forestry. The vital role of plant pathology in attaining food security and food safety for the world cannot be overemphasized. A number of native or non-native plants are unwanted in a specific location for a number of reasons. Similarly, they can be of concern for environmental reasons whereby introduced species out-compete for resources or space with desired endemic plants. While the term "weed" generally has a negative connotation, many plants known as weeds can have beneficial properties. A number of weeds, such as the dandelion and lamb's quarter, are edible, and their leaves or roots may be used for food or herbal medicine.
