About this book

Examining intercellular infections in certain plant species that lead to a symbiotic relationship between the host and its endophytic microbes, this volume demonstrates the ability of many types of endosymbionts, acting as a unit with hosts to better survive, compete and reproduce. Practical applications of such endophytes are also discussed, for example, pharmaceutical developments and agricultural management.


Contents

Association in stems and leaves. Associations with roots and bacterial endophytes. Endophyte physiology and the biochemical arsenal.
