JGPP 100th Anniversary Special Reviews

In 2015, the Phytopathological Society of Japan (PSJ) celebrated its 100th anniversary, and a series of invited reviews were published in each issue of the Journal of General Plant Pathology during 2013-2014 to celebrate this milestone. Here you will find these review articles — a remarkable collection of frontier phytopathological research in Japan. Enjoy reading!
