About this book

This comprehensive volume – Plant-Microbe Interactions – provides a detailed review of current research covering different modes of interaction between microbes and plants. Included among the interactions examined are: the symbiotic association of Rhizobium, Azorhizobium and Frankia with different plant systems; disease resistance strategies for plants; the role of the agrobacterium system in the formation of tumors; and oligosaccharides produced as a result of the degradation of plant microbial extracellular matrix.
