The names of genera should always be written with a capital. Correctly, the author of the name should be written after the species. Then, if someone else places the species in a new genus, the name of the first author is put in parentheses followed by the name of the second author. When a number of taxonomists have worked on a group, the list of authors gets quite unwieldy. For simplicity all authors have been omitted from the scientific names in this text. The correct name for a fungus with more than one stage is that first given, with a valid description, for the teleomorph or sexual stage.

Timing. Improper timing of control measure will result in disease control failure; the control measure must be timed correctly to the stage of disease development. • Records. Brief accurate records are a good tool for disease control decisions. Although entomologists have achieved some success with biological controls, the successes by plant pathologists with biological control has been somewhat sparse. While use of classical biological control has aided pest control, most biocontrol products have not yet proved to be preferred treatments for disease control.
