Broadleaved Shrubs and Shade Trees: Problems, Picture Clues, and Management Options (NRAES 183)
Malinoski, Mary Kay; Clement, David L.
Why didn’t my azaleas flower this year? Why is my maple tree showing its fall colors in July? What’s been chewing little round holes in the leaves of my roses? What’s causing those unsightly brown spots on the flowers of my prized dogwood? The answers to these questions and many more can be found in this book. After observing the problem in a shrub or shade tree, the gardener can follow the guide’s easy-to-use, photo-based problem key to zero in on the cause and find a solution. Over 125 disease, insect, abiotic, and other types of problems are described with 430+ color photos and text. It also contains a glossary. Intended for gardeners, students, educators, and landscapers.
This 180 page publication (NRAES-183) was originally published by the Natural Resource, Agriculture, and Engineering Service (NRAES, previously known as the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service), a multi-university program in the Northeast US disbanded in 2011. Plant and Life Sciences Publishing (PALS) was subsequently formed to manage the NRAES catalog. Ceasing operations in 2018, PALS was a program of the Department of Horticulture in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell University. PALS assisted university faculty in publishing, marketing and distributing books for small farmers, gardeners, land owners, workshops, college courses, and consumers.
