Description

Biochemistry and Physiology of Plant Immunity details the physiological properties of plant immunity from a biochemical perspective. The book provides a summary and concise explanation of the various studies conducted on the field of biochemistry and physiology of plant immunity. The text first details the evolution of parasitism, and then proceeds to discussing the biochemistry and physiology of heterotrophic micro-organisms. Next, the selection talks about the biochemistry and physiology of diseased plant, before it finally deals with plant immunity. The book will be of great use to researchers and practitioners of disciplines that deal with the health of vegetation, such as botany and horticulture.
