Описание: The need and demand to feed the ever-increasing global population, pose major challenges for increasing crop productivity in eco-friendly manner. Cultivation of crops under input-intensive conditions resulted in enhanced vulnerability of the high-yielding cultivars to a multitude of pests and pathogens at all phenological stages. Disease spectrum and intensity are continuously changing because of the dynamic nature of crop systems, pests and pathogens. Thus, disease management has become the major functional component of the crop production systems.

Описание: Plants are sources of nourishment for thousands of different species of fungi, bacteria, invertebrates, vertebrates and even other plants. In order to thrive, plants possess a remarkable diversity of mechanisms to fend off attacks: recent research has demonstrated many complex and sophisticated defense mechanisms including internal signalling networks co-ordinating defense responses within the plant , and even the ability to warn neighbouring plants. The ability of plants to defend themselves is important for plants in their natural environment and of course for plants under cultivation. Indeed, man has made use of an increasing knowledge of plant defenses over the years to breed crop plants able to resist pest or pathogen attack. Plant Defense provides an overview of all major aspects of plant defense, including defense against pathogens, parasites, and invertebrate and vertebrate herbivores. The book looks at defense mechanisms incuding structural and chemical defenses, and constitutive and inducible defenses. Coverage includes details of how plants 'sense' attack and how this is communicated within the plant and also to neighbouring plants, how plants coordinate defense responses to simultaneous multiple attacks, and the energy and resources expended by a plant in maintaining and implementing its defense systems. A final section of the book covers the breeding and modification of plants to enhance their defense systems.This important book, wriiten by Professor Dale Walters, well known and respected internationally, is essential reading for students studying plant pathology, agricultural and plant sciences and ecology. Researchers in these subjects and all those involved in crop protection, including workers in the agrochemical industry, will find much of commercial and research interest within this exciting title. Libraries in all universities and research establishements where thes subjects are studied and taught will need copies of this book on their shelves.

Описание: Biological control of plant diseases and plant pathogens is of great significance in forestry and agriculture. There is great incentive to discover biologically active natural products from higher plants that are better than synthetic agrochemicals and are much safer, from a health and environmental point-of-view. The development of natural products such as herbicides, fungicides, and their role in biological control of plant diseases, indicates a reduction in environmental and health hazards. Allelopathic techniques offer a real future in solving several problems, for instance biological control of plant pests. This book is organized around the indication that allelochemicals can be employed for biological control of plant pathogens and plant diseases. Specifically, this volume focuses on (i) discovery and development of natural product based fungicides for agriculture, (ii) direct use of allelochemicals as well as indirect effects through cover crops and organic amendments for plant parasitic pest control and (iii) application of allelopathy in pest management.
