Most recently, I have taught two different courses, and am scheduled to teach a descendent of one of these courses in fall 2008:
PP602: Biology of plant pathogens (shared with Keith Perry), 3 credits spring 2007. The goal of this course is to survey the most important aspects of the biology of the diverse groups of plant pathogens. I was responsible for the fungi and oomycetes, and attempted to illustrate important concepts in plant pathology by describing how the biology of selected fungi and oomycetes illustrated these concepts. We used lectures, discussion of research papers and individual student projects to illustrate the important unique features of different important plant pathogens.
PP241: Plant Diseases and Disease Management, spring semesters, 4 credits. This course has recently evolved into PP301, which I will teach in fall 2008. The course was an introductory survey of plant pathogens and plant diseases with an overall emphasis on disease management.
PP301: Introductory Plant Pathology, fall semester, 4 credits. This course is an introduction to plant pathology with introduction to all of the major groups of plant pathogens.
