About this book

This Soil Biology volume examines our current understanding of the mechanisms involved in the beneficial effects transferred to plants by endophytes such as rhizobial, actinorhizal, arbuscular mycorrhizal symbionts and yeasts.

Topics presented include how symbiosis starts on the molecular level; chemical signaling in mycorrhizal symbiosis; genomic and functional diversity of endophytes; nitrogen fixation; nutrient uptake and cycling; as well as plant protection against various stress conditions. Further, the use of beneficial microorganisms as biopesticides is discussed, particularly the application of Plant Growth Promoter Rhizobacteria (PGPR) in agriculture with the aim to increase yields.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This marvelous book titled ‘Symbiotic Endophytes’ consists of the most recent knowledge of plant endophytes, including their diversity as known to date. … It should be available in all school libraries, university libraries, research laboratories dealing with plant pathology. The detailed descriptions complement the researchers, mycologists, plant pathologists, molecular biologist, lecturers, teachers and graduate students. In fact this book will satisfy every individual who reads it.” (Leela Maya Rizal and Paul G. Mungai, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)
