About this book

Plant parasitic nematodes often establish unique, sophisticated relationships with their hosts, dramatically influencing plant productivity. This book reviews the most recent developments in the molecular biology of plant-nematode interactions that have been driven by the application of genomics tools.  The book will be of interest to postgraduate students and to researchers with an interest in plant nematology and/or plant pathology more generally.  A series of introductory chapters provide a biological context for the detailed reviews of all areas of plant-nematode interactions that follow and ensure that the bulk of the book is accessible to the non-specialist.  Chapters provide not just the exciting state of the art in each field, but also the experts’ views of how they expect that research in each field would develop in the near future. A final section aims to show how these fundamental studies have provided outputs of practical relevance in agriculture.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Throughout the volume, the editors have done an outstanding job of placing recent achievements into a historical context. Each chapter provides an extensive list of references, including historic landmark papers and recent publications. … this book provides not only a critical analysis of recent developments in plant-nematode interactions, but also a valuable literature resource for years to come. … I highly recommend this volume not only for specialists who are interested in plant-nematode interactions, but for nematologists and plant pathologists in general.” (Axel A. Elling, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 87 (3), September, 2012)
