Natural Resistance Mechanisms of Plants to Viruses

Overview

This book is a first attempt to link well-known plant resistance phenomena with emerging concepts in molecular biology. Resistance phenomena such as the local lesion response, induced resistance, "green islands" and resistance in various crop plants are linked with new information on gene-silencing mechanisms, gene silencing suppressors, movement proteins and plasmodesmatal gating, downstream signalling components, and more.

Meet the Author

Gad Loebenstein. Ph.D. Graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and joined the Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center, Israel. He served as Head of the Department pf Plant Virology, Director pf the Agricultural Research Organization and Chief Scientist of the Ministry of Agriculture. His major research interests are plant virus diseases and natural resistance mechanisms of plants to viruses. His published work includes more than 200 scientific and technical papers. He was appointed as Adjunct Professor at the Hebrew University and at the Tel Aviv University, and at the latter as Professor Emeritus. He is a Fellow of the American Phytopathological Society, a Corresponding Member at the German Phytomedizinische Society and a member of the Kazakh Academy for Agriculture. In 1982 he received the Rothschild Prize for Agriculture.
