9781405134477: Induced Resistance for Plant Defence: A Sustainable Approach to Crop Protection

Plant diseases worldwide are responsible for billions of dollars worth of crop losses every year. With less agrochemicals being used and less new fungicides coming on the market due to environmental concerns, more effort is now being put into the use of genetic potential of plants for pathogen resistance and the development of induced or acquired resistance as an environmentally safe means of disease control.

This comprehensive book examines in depth the development and exploitation of induced resistance. Chapters review current knowledge of the agents that can elicit induced resistance, genomics, signalling cascades, mechanisms of defence to pests and pathogens and molecular tools. Further chapters consider the topical application of inducers for disease control, microbial induction of pathogen resistance, transgenic approaches, pathogen population biology, trade offs associated with induced resistance and integration of induced resistance in crop protection. The book concludes with a consideration of socio-economic drivers determining the use of induced resistance, and the future of induced resistance in crop protection.

From the Back Cover:


Induced Resistance for Plant Defence provides comprehensive details of the science, methodology and applications of this important subject, which now offers the prospect of broad spectrum, long lasting and potentially environmentally benign disease control in plants.

The cutting edge contents of this extremely important book include coverage of cellular aspects of induced resistance, including signaling and defence mechanisms, the trade offs associated with the expression of induced resistance, work on integrating induced resistance into crop protection practice and induced resistance from a commercial perspective.

With chapters written by internationally-respected contributors from around the world, each edited and integrated by three editors known for their work in this area, Induced Resistance for Plant Defence will be of great interest and use to plant pathologists, plant cell and molecular biologists, agricultural scientists, crop protection specialists and personnel working in the agrochemical industry. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological and agricultural sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important book on their shelves.
