Chemical Dialogue Between Host and Plant Beneficial Microorganisms provides foundational insights on the various mechanisms of plant beneficial microorganisms and their impact on the health and productivity of plants. Providing in-depth and recent updates about unexplored aspects of plant microbes interactions, the book includes the biological repertoire of arbuscular mycorrhizal association, molecular architecture of Rhizobium-plant symbiosis, endophytes in transcriptional plasticity during host colonization by endophytes. Chemical Dialogue Between Host and Plant Beneficial Microorganisms also Includes details about the mechanism of different plant beneficial microorganisms, how these differ and their cross signaling and role of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics approaches unraveling the basis of the interaction. This book will be an important reference for researchers working on different plant beneficial microorganisms and their molecular arsenal such as mycorrhiza, free living and symbiotically associated nitrogen fixing, plant growth producers and then their similarity/cross talk at molecular level.

Key Features

  • Includes coverage of oxylipins and strerols in inducing systemic responses
  • Explores the role of microbes in transcriptional plasticity of host plants
  • Highlights the biology of vegetative cells, N2-fixing vesicles and microbial volatiles in plant growth

Malgorzata Jedryczka

Dr. Jedryczka is head and full professor of the Dept of Pathogen Genetics and Plant Resistance, Institute of Plant Genetics of the Polish Academy of Sciences where she was the Founder and first Head of the International Doctoral Study Program. She has received multiple international awards in recognition of her work and her over 200 scientific contributions have been published in reputed international journals. She developed the System for Forecasting Disease Epidemics (SPEC) which has been implemented at the country level, thanks to a collaboration with DuPont (currently: Corteva). It is the largest in Europe and the third largest decision support system for plant protection in the world, based on aerobiological and molecular methods. In cooperation with the companies Bayer, Dalgety and Syngenta, she modified and popularized the petal test for predicting the infection of oilseed rape by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (stem rot)
