About this book

The study of deleterious or beneficial biochemical interactions between plants (allelopathy) and the chemicals responsible for these interactions (allelochemicals) has wide implications in many areas of biological science. The Editors have drawn together an eminent international group of contributors who provide thorough coverage of all aspects of this important subject.

..essential to scientists and students involved in allelopathic research...well presented and very readable. - Biological Agriculture and Horticulture; The book is illustrated excellently and clearly arranged. ... The clear construction of the chapters leads the reader directly to the information he looks for...the book gives a view of the present knowledge in allelopathy and can not only be recommended to specialists in this field but also to anyone who is interested - Journal of Plant Physiology
