        This is the second edition of a book published by INBAR in 1997, a large number of potentially
serious diseases posing threat to bamboos in different bamboo growing countries in the region
have been described. As large-scale monoculture planting operations of bamboos in the region
have been carried out rigorously for the past two decades, emergence of new diseases as well as
flare up of existing minor or potentially serious diseases in epidemic proportions affecting bamboo
culm production as well as stand productivity is anticipated. Hence, overall updation of
information on diseases and disorders affecting bamboos in the region is attempted here.
