Fungal Pathogenesis in Plants and Crops: Molecular Biology and Host Defense Mechanism

Front Cover
CRC Press, Jul 25, 1997 - Science - 568 pages
From the molecular basis of host defense mechanisms and molecular events leading to the suppression of defense mechanisms by fungal pathogens to fungal infection processes, this work covers various aspects of molecular plant pathology. It includes initial contact, penetration and subsequent evasion of post-penetration defense mechanisms. It documents and illustrates up-to-date experimental results and hypotheses.
