About this Textbook

This comprehensive volume consists of a series of up-to-date reviews, each incorporating current models and knowledge related to mechanisms of resistance either expressed constitutively or induced systemically in plants. Each chapter covers a topic related to the phenomenon of plant resistance to fungal and bacterial pathogens, insects, nematodes, viruses or abiotic stress in plants, as well as the application of this knowledge to protect crops now and in the future. Researchers, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, and those teaching courses in plant physiology, entomology and plant pathology will find this volume a much needed asset.

Featured Topics include:

QTL analysis of multigenic disease resistance in plant breeding

Ultrastructural studies in plant disease resistance

Chemical signals in plant resistance: salicylic acid

Signaling in plant resistance responses: divergence and cross-talk of defense pathways

Tree defenses against insects

Chemical signals in plants: jasmonates and the role of insect-derived elicitors in responses to herbivores

Engineering plants for durable disease resistance

Commercialization of plant systemic defense activation: theory, problems and successes

About the authors

Dr. Tuzun, currently a full professor at Auburn University, is a molecular plant pathologist and pioneer in the field of induced systemic resistance.

Dr. Bent, currently a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. James Borneman at the Unviersity of California – Riverside, is investigating the microbial basis of disease suppression in soil. She has degrees in microbiology and soil science, and has investigated a variety of interactions between plants and microorganisms or microfauna in the rhizosphere.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The fascinating phenomenon that susceptible plants can become resistant to pathogenic organisms by means of complex induced mechanisms has attracted numerous scientists worldwide. It is therefore appreciated that the state of knowledge of this important subject is summarized and discussed in this book … . All chapters are supplemented with extended, mostly up-to-date references … . A detailed subject index is added. … the book can be highly recommended to every plant pathologist active in research on host-parasite interactions." (R. Heitefuss, Journal of Phytopathology, Vol. 154 (11-12), 2006)
