About this Book

Annual Plant Reviews, Volume 34
Molecular Aspects of Plant Disease Resistance
Edited by Jane Parker

In recent years, our understanding of the mechanisms involved in plant resistance to disease has seen major advances. This important new volume in Wiley-Blackwell's Annual Plant Reviews provides cutting edge reviews on major aspects of plant immunity from many of the world's leading researchers in the area. Coverage includes:

• Establishment of disease by microbial pathogens
• Genomic approaches to understanding host-pathogen interactions
• Local and systemic resistance signalling
• Activities of small bioactive molecules
• Plant-insect ecology

This exciting volume is essential reading for all those studying plant-pathogen interactions including plant and agricultural scientists, molecular biologists, geneticists and microbiologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological and agricultural sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important volume on their shelves.
