  • Strategies for Effective State Early Detection/Rapid Response Programs for Plant Pests and Pathogens Report

    Early Detection/Rapid Response (EDRR) is a critical tool for identifying and eradicating introductions of new invasive species and pests. The effectiveness of EDRR largely depends on a supportive legal framework that can facilitate quick action. However, a number of states either lack the appropriate legal framework or contain restrictions (such ...

  • Predicting Invasions of Nonindigenous Plants and Plant Pests

    Nonindigenous plants and plant pests that find their way to the United States and become invasive can often cause problems. They cost more than $100 billion per year in crop and timber losses plus the expense of herbicides and pesticides. And this figure does not include the costs of invasions in less intensively managed ecosystems such as ...

  • Prevention and control of transboundary animal diseases - vol 133 (En)

    Series: FAO Animal Production and Health PapersThe objectives of FAO's Special Programme, EMPRES, (i.e. Emergency Prevention System for Transboundary Animal and Plant Pests and Diseases) which complements the Special Programme on Food Security, are in conformity with the World Food Summit Plan of Action. The Livestock-Diseases Component of EMPRES ...

  • Plant Breeding

    This book marks the centenary of the rediscovery of Mendel’s laws of biological inheritance, which have had their greatest economic impact in the rapid development of the science of plant breeding. It documents the development of methods of plant breeding over a hundred year period beginning with simple hybridization and selection techniques ...

  • Photomorphogenesis in Plants and Bacteria

    This unique resource reviews progress made by scientists researching into how ambient changes in the wavelength, intensity, direction and duration of light environment affect plant growth and development - explaining how combinations of new research with classical photobiology and physiology made feasible to interpret intriguing light dependent ...

  • 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 ...

  • Iron Nutrition in Plants and Rhizospheric Microorganisms

    This book uses an interdisciplinary approach to provide a comprehensive review on the status of iron nutrition in plants. International scientists discuss research on acquisition of iron by strategy I and strategy II plants. These reviews summarize a variety of plant species and include both laboratory and field observations.Topics covered in this ...

  • Soil Biological Fertility

    This book presents a comprehensive scientific overview of the components and processes that underpin the biological characteristics of soil fertility. It demonstrates the interdependence of soil biological fertility with physical and chemical characteristics of soil. The book highlights the enormous diversity of life in soil and the resulting ...

  • Plant-Pathogen Interactions

    Plant-Pathogen Interactions: Methods and Protocols provides key methods, approaches, and strategies to dissect the plant defense response. Addressing methods to identify and characterize plant resistance genes as well as pathogen-associated molecules that trigger the plant defense response, this volume creates a better understanding of the ...

  • Ascochyta blights of grain legumes

    Ascochyta blights consistently affect large areas of grain legume production (pea, lentil, chickpea and faba bean) in all countries where they are cultivated. These diseases are capable of causing large yield losses under conducive environmental conditions. This book considers the state of the art by taking a comparative approach of Ascochyta ...

  • Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes

    Diazotrophic bacteria convert atmospheric nitrogen to plant-useable form and this input of nitrogen through biological fixation is of great agronomic importance. The contributions presented in this volume relate to free-living nitrogen fixers and the diazotrophs associated with plants. Symbiotic association of Frankia with non-legumes and ...

  • Biocontrol Potential and its Exploitation in Sustainable Agriculture

    Plant based biotechnology has come to represent a means of mitigating the problems of global food security in the twenty-first century. Products and processes in agriculture are increasingly becoming linked to science and cutting edge technology, to enable the engineering of what are in effect, designer plants. One of the most successful , ...

  • Interchanges of Insects between Agricultural and Surrounding Landscapes

    The rationale for this book is based on an appreciation of the fact that all insects are profoundly influenced by their surroundings. Generally the interactions between insect pests, their host plants, and their natural enemies have been studied within a specific crop. However, agroecosystems are much more than fields in which we grow our ...

  • Mycorrhizae: Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry

    Mycorrhizal fungi are microbial engines which improve plant vigor and soil quality. They play a crucial role in plant nutrient uptake, water relations, ecosystem establishment, plant diversity, and the productivity of plants. Scientific research involves multidisciplinary approaches to understand the adaptation of mycorrhizae to the rhizosphere, ...

  • Recent Developments in Management of Plant Diseases

    Plant disease management remains an important component of plant pathology and is more complex today than ever before including new innovation in diagnostic kits, the discovery of new modes of action of chemicals with low environmental impact, biological control agents with reliable and persistent activity, as well as the development of new plant ...

  • Plant-Associated Bacteria

    This volume is developed on the broad theme of plant-associated bacteria. It is envisioned as a resource volume for researchers working with beneficial and harmful groups of bacteria associated with crop plants. The book is divided into two parts. Part I (9 chapters) on beneficial bacteria includes chapters on symbiotic nitrogen fixers, ...
