About this book

Based on a similarly named meeting in December 1999 organized by the British Society for Plant Pathology, this book considers the biology of interactions between host plants and the pathogens that infect them. This topic has seen some significant advances during the 1990s more especially through the application of molecular techniques which are extensively covered in this book.


Biotic interactions and plant disease; functional consequences and maintenance of vegetative incompatibility in fungal populations; fungal endophytes and nematodes of agricultural and amenity grasses; feeding on plant-pathogenic fungi by invertebrates: a comparison t saprotropic and mycorrhizal systems; plant interactions with endophytic bacteria; are chitinolytic rhizospere bacteria really beneficial to plants?; cross-protection: interactions between strains exploited to control plant virus diseases; plant-pathogen-herbivore interactions and their effects on weeds; the role of hyperparasites in the host plant-parasitic fungus relationship; mutualism and antagonism - ecological interactions among bark beetles, mites and fungi; the implications for plant health of nematode-fungal interactions in the root zone; the interactions of plant, soil pathogens, and their antogonists in natural ecosystems; observation and theory of whitefly-borne virus epidemics.
