The poster ‘Plant Pathogens – Identification’ illustrates diagnostic tests that are commonly used to identify plant pathogens in the lab and in the field.
The poster is accompanied by a presentation, which can be used as a step-by-step walkthrough of the ideas in the poster.
Ideas about communicable diseases in plants are included in the updated programmes of study for Key Stage 4 biology published in December 2014. These ideas will be included in GCSE science courses from 2016 (for first assessment in summer 2018).
This bundle of resources will help develop the following learning outcome at KS4:
- describe different ways plant diseases can be detected and identified in the lab and in the field.
Note that this learning outcome is required in both GCSE Biology and GCSE Combined Science.
