Written by a truly global team of researchers from Europe, Asia and the Americas with strong ties to agricultural research centers and the agrochemical industry, this ready reference and handbook focuses on the role of nitric oxide signaling in plant defense systems against pathogens, parasites and environmental stress response.
This is one of the first titles to provide a comprehensive overview of the physiological role of this ubiquitous signaling molecule in higher plants, making it an indispensable resource not only for academic institutions but also for those working in the agrochemical industry.
