About this book

Since the publication of the first edition of "The Mycota Vol. V - Plant Relationships" in 1997, tremendous advances in fungal molecular biology and biochemistry have taken place; and both light and electron microscopical techniques have improved considerably. These new insights led to a better understanding of the relationships between fungi and plants; and a completely revised new edition of Plant Relationships could be produced, providing an up-to-date overview on mutualistic and pathogenic interactions. In 18 chapters internationally acknowledged authors present reviews on fungal lifestyles, mechanisms of their interactions with their host plants, signal perception and transduction, and plant defense responses directed against attack by fungal pathogens.


Introduction to Part A and Part B; Fungus-Plant Interactions - An Overview * External Interactions; Adhesion of Spores and Hyphae to Plant Surfaces; Chemical and Physical Cues for Spore Germination and Appressorium Formation * Fungal Invasion and Plant Responses; Breaching the Outer Barriers - Cuticle and Cell Wall Penetration; Fungal Invasion Enzymes and Their Inhibition; Signals in Host-Parasite Interactions; Pathogenesis-Related Proteins and Plant Defense; Fungal Phytotoxins; Cochliovolus spp. and Their Host-Specific Toxins; Fungal Phytohormones in Pathogenic Associations; Altered Host Metabolism in Grass/Endophyte Associations: Endophyte Toxin Production; Metabolic Interaction at the Mycobiont-Photobiont; Altered Gene Expression During Ectomycorrhizal Development * Generic Index * Subject Index.
