Description

The need for sustainable agricultural practices and the changing agro-climatic conditions demand intensive research on endophytic microorganisms. Endophytes have been demonstrated to have significant applications in managing the challenges associated with increasing population, polluted lands and other harsh environmental conditions. Microbial Endophytes: Functional Biology and Application focuses on endophytic bacteria and fungi from introducing foundational endophytes information, to the latest advances in relevant genomics, proteomics, and nanotechnological aspects. Providing insights into the molecular aspects of plant endophytes interaction, applications, this book also explores the potential commercialization of endophytic microorganism or their products as bio fertilizers, biocontrol, bioactive compounds and other sustainable applications.

Microbial Endophytes: Functional Biology and Application also includes coverage of important and emerging legal considerations relevant to those working to implement these important bacteria in production processes.

Key Features

  • Presents entry, colonization and distribution of endophytic microorganisms
  • Explores phyto immunological functions of endophytic microorganisms
  • Provides genomic insights of plant endophyte interaction: prospective and impact on plant health
  • Identifies bio-commercial aspects of microbial endophytes for sustainable agriculture including potential legal issues and IPR in microbial research

Readership

Researchers and advanced academics in microbiology, agricultural sciences, biotechnology. Microbiologists, ecologists, plant pathologists, physiologists, agronomists, molecular biologists, pharmacologists and related researchers
