Phytochemistry Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Phytochemical Signals and Plant-Microbe Interactions
edited by John T. Romeo, Kelsey R. Downum,
and Rob Verpoorte

The research presented in Phytochemical Signals and Plant-Microbe Interactions covers traditional areas in plant chemical ecology, and also addresses fundamental issues on the involvement of phytochemicals in intra- and intraspecific signaling, applications of the knowledge gained from such studies, and evolutionary origins.

Phytochemical Signals and Plant-Microbe Interactions discusses:

  • the multifunctional roles of many phytochemicals
  • the power of molecular techniques for studying biosynthetic pathways and gene function
  • the central role of natural products in pathogenesis and disease resistance
  • the identification of promising areas for future research and development of applications
  • the emerging role and significance of saponins as antifungal agents
  • the concept of multiple roles played by natural products in ecological systems
  • the application of molecular biological tools for modifying the chemistry of plants for man's use.
