This chapter discusses the plant diseases caused by fungi. Fungi cause more plant diseases than all other enemies combined. Since the beginning of agriculture, livelihoods and lives have been lost to rusts, smuts, bunts, mildews, potato blight, and rice blast. Of particular significance in this discussion is a pestilence called coffee rust that ravages an indispensable coffee crop in South America. Fungi also spoil food after it has been harvested, rotting fruits and vegetables during storage, transport, and in the recesses of refrigerators.

Keywords:   fungi, plant diseases, rot, coffee rust
