In recent years, our understanding of the mechanisms involved in plant resistance to disease has seen major advances. This important new volume provides cutting-edge reviews on major aspects of plant immunity from many of the world’s leading researchers in the area. It is essential reading for all those studying plant-pathogen interactions, including plant and agricultural scientists, molecular biologists, geneticists, and microbiologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological and agricultural sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important volume on their shelves. Coverage includes establishment of disease by microbial pathogens; genomic approaches to understanding host-pathogen interactions; local and systemic resistance signaling; activities of small bioactive molecules; and plant-insect ecology.
