Booknews
In 19 articles, plant scientists, microbiologists, and other contributors discuss promising new and alternative physiological and molecular approaches to the development of effective biological controls for plant crop diseases, based upon complex plant-microbe interactions. Sample titles include: diversity in soilborne microbial communities, biocontrol of postharvest disease, control of cucumber mosaic virus using viral satellites, and genetic analysis of selected antifungal metabolites.
