I have been actively working on virus and virus-like diseases of citrus for the last 35 years. It had been long felt need by citrus virologists in India and abroad to bring out a comprehensive publication on virus and virus-like pathogens infecting citrus with special emphasis to the research work done in the Indian subcontinent which is considered as home of citrus. Therefore, I decided to write my experiences on citrus viruses gained in India and abroad. While working at the University of California, Riverside, INRA, Bordeaux, France, and several research Institutes in Brazil and my visits to CREC, University of Florida, Australia, China and some other places, I gained on hand experience on several citrus diseases which have not been reported from India like stubborn, citrus blight, leprosies, variegated chlorosis and several others. During my research career, it has been my privilege to work on several National and International projects on human resource development and diagnostics in the field of citrus virology. I gained long exposure on virus and virus like diseases working on Advanced Centre for Plant Virology at Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi and its Regional stations at Shimla and Kalimpong. To avoid introduction of viruses through the movement of citrus germplasm, (IOCV), FAO, and IBPGR jointly published FAO/IBPGR Technical Guidelines for the Safe Movement of Citrus Germplasm (Frison and Taher, 1991) and the author was also a member of this team. This document is serving citrus industry to check virus movement with planting material or through citrus germplasm from one country to another or from one region to another region. There are eight chapters in this book: Introduction, Virus diseases of known etiology, Virus diseases of unknown etiology, Other graft transmissible diseases of citrus, Diseases caused by prokaryotes, Diseases caused by viroids and the final chapter on management of virus and virus-like diseases of citrus. Detailed information has been provided on distribution and economic impotance of these diseases. Each chapter carries information on disease symptoms, transmission, vector(s) host range including wild and natural hosts, indicators, pathogens associated with these diseases, their taxonomic position, diagnosis and management. At the end of each chapter related figures have been given. In total 37 Figures and 53 colour plates have been put in this publication which is a rare collection. This publication should be of value to the students and teachers of plant virology, plant Pathology, and horticulture for diagnosis and management of citrus diseases and to study virus and virus-like pathogens associated with citrus diseases.
