Acknowledgements

The information in this handbook has been compiled from many sources. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort that everyone spent preparing and reviewing this material. Many of the past authors and contributors have been identified in the 2004 PNW Plant Disease Management Handbook, our 50th edition. Our attempt in this section is to identify all individuals who worked on the 2016 version of the handbook whether their effort was great or small. Those acknowledged as authors or contributors have written completely new sections or conducted major rewrites of existing sections. Reviewers helped read through and verify the existing information.

Special thanks go to Erik Ackerson for his skill in copyediting and desktop publishing and to project manager Jennifer Alexander, who keeps all the books moving along toward publication.

Finally, a personal acknowledgment from Jay to his family: Jacob, so close to that 2-year degree, keep up the good work. Lucas, I can see, and literally taste the difference, culinary school has had on you; hope you get the position you want for the French banquet. I will always love you both. To my wife Kim, still thrilled to be your husband. Ian, hope you get the internship you want. Erin, I know you will enjoy college even if you are a duck! Love you all! – J. W. Pscheidt

This volume is dedicated to my brother, Michael Shorey Ocamb: for the laughter and music that you brought to the world, and the strength that you showed in moving forward, in spite of the currents that tried for so long to pull you away; for sharing the Allman Brothers through Zappa, rope swings, paper airplanes, and everything in-between. – C. M. Ocamb
