An internet resource that might help you is the telnet site maintained by
the USDA-ARS Systematic Mycology labs, which includes the bibliography of
"Literature Guide for Identification of Plant Pathogenic Fungi." There you
can find a guide to the taxonomic literature on oomycetous genera that
include plant pathogens.  See my web page
<http://muse.bio.cornell.edu/taxonomy/fungi.html#USDA> for access

Unfortunately I don't know of any recent works that treat all Oomycetes,
but you might have better luck by appealing to the oomycetologists who lurk
in bionet.mycology.
