About this book

This book provides the reader with relevant information about actual knowledge of the process of allelopathy, covering all aspects from the molecular to the ecological level. Special emphasis is given to the physiological and ecophysiological aspects of allelopathy. Several ecosystems are studied and methodological considerations are taken into account in several chapters. The book has been written to be useful both for Ph.D. students and for senior researchers, so the chapters include all necessary information to be read by beginners, but also include a lot of useful information and discussion for the initiated.
