Overview

In recent years, our understanding of the mechanisms involved in a plant's resistance to attack by disease, has seen major advances.

This important new title, part of Blackwell Publishing's Annual Plant Reviews Series, provides cutting edge reviews of each of the major aspects of the subject .

Edited by Dr Jane Parker from the Max-Planck Institute, Molecular Aspects of Plant Disease Resistance includes contributions from many of the world's leading researcher in the area. Coverage includes the evolution of plant-virus interactions and plant resistance loci, the role of plant secondary metabolites, plant systemic resistance, oomycete genomics, intracellular immune receptors, transcriptional reprogramming, fungal biotrophy, chemical ecology of plant-insect interactions, bacterial Type III effectors and host perception of PAMPs

This exciting book is essential reading for all those involved in plant-pathogen interactions including plant and agricultural scientists, molecular biologists and microbiologists.
