Strong Points: Many general resources for researchers and educators
Weak Points: None


For those readers unclear on what “phytopathology” is, have no fear—the website for the American Phytopathological Society (APS) has you covered in its aptly named section, “What is phytopathology?” Simply put, phytopathology is just another way of saying plant pathology, meaning the study of plant disease. Within that realm, the APS website includes many useful resources for interested readers, including feature articles on specific plant diseases, a collection of featured images, and a newsfeed. The website includes information about society membership and meetings, as well as a section devoted to careers in plant pathology. Additionally, site visitors will find a number of educational resources for both students and teachers (including an illustrated glossary and laboratory exercises) within the education section of the site.
