  • Allelochemicals: Biological Control of Plant Pathogens and Diseases

    Biological control of plant diseases and plant pathogens is of great significance in forestry and agriculture. There is great incentive to discover biologically active natural products from higher plants that are better than synthetic agrochemicals and are much safer, from a health and environmental point-of-view. The development of natural ...

  • Plant Relationships

    Since the publication of the first edition of 'The Mycota Vol. V – Plant Relationships' in 1997, tremendous advances in fungal molecular biology and biochemistry have taken place; and both light and electron microscopical techniques have improved considerably. These new insights led to a better understanding of the relationships between fungi and ...

  • Molecular Biology in Plant Pathogenesis and Disease Management:

    Investigations on various aspects of plant-pathogen interactions have the ultimate aim of providing information that may be useful for the development of effective crop disease management systems. Molecular techniques have accelerated the formulation of short- and long-term strategies of disease management. Exclusion and eradication of plant ...

  • Plant Microtubules

    Plant microtubules are key elements of cell growth, division and morphogenesis. In addition to their role in plant development and architecture, they have emerged as regulatory elements of signalling and important targets of evolution.Since the publication of the first edition of Plant Microtubules in 2000, our understanding of microtubules and ...

  • Plant Surface Microbiology

    Most plants rely on the co-existence with microorganisms: both groups benefit from these symbioses. It has been shown that a large number of specific genes in plants and microorganisms are only activated during these interactions. Of course, various microbes also act as pathogens. Interactions between plants and microorganisms are often located on ...

  • Planthoppers

    Planthoppers include some of the most devastating pests of major agricultural crops throughout the world. One species, the rice brown planthopper, is among the most economically important pests in Asia. In past decades, government policies encouraged the control of rice planthoppers with synthetic pesticides, a tactic which promoted ...

  • Biotechnological Approaches in Biocontrol of Plant Pathogens

    Biological control offers a promising alternative to chemical control which can have adverse environmental implications. This volume contains 16 articles describing the most modern topics in biocontrol of plant pathogens, including risk analysis for the release of microbial antagonists, genetic engineering and application of tissue culture. ...

  • Mycorrhizal Biology

    'The fundamental problem the world faces today, is the rapidly increasing pressure of population on the limited resources of the land. To meet the ever increasing demands of expanding populations, agricultural production has been raised through the abundant use of inorganic fertilizers, the adoption of multicropping systems and liberal ...

  • The Role of Plant Pathology in Food Safety and Food Security

    This book views the vulnerability of our crops in general to devastating diseases as well as specifically the disease problems of two important staples, rice and cassava. Increased travel and increased transport of plant material throughout the world pose ever more significant risks to the health of our plants. These include not only the ...

  • Agrobacterium: From Biology to Biotechnology

    Agrobacterium is a plant pathogen which causes the 'crown-gall' disease, a neoplastic growth that results from the transfer of a well-defined DNA segment ('transferred DNA', or 'T-DNA') from the bacterial Ti (tumor-inducing) plasmid to the host cell, its integration into the host genome, and the expression of oncogenes contained on the T-DNA. The ...
