Induced Resistance for Plant Defence
A Sustainable Approach to Crop Protection
edited by Dale Walters

Induced Resistance for Plant Defence provides comprehensive details of the science, methodology and application of this important subject, which now offers the prospect of broad spectrum, long lasting and potentially environmentally benign disease control in plants.

Induced Resistance for Plant Defence includes coverage of celluar aspects of induced resistance including:

  • signaling and defence mechanisms
  • the trade offs associated with the expression of induced resistance
  • work on integrating induced resistance into crop protection practice
  • induced resistance from a commercial perspective

Contents

  1. Introduction: definitions and some history
  2. Agents that can elicit induced resistance
  3. Genomics in induced resistance
  4. Signaling cascades involved in induced resistance
  5. Types and mechanisms of rapidly-induced plant resistance to herbivorous arthropods
  6. Mechanisms of defence to pathogens: biochemistry and physiology
  7. Induced resistance in natural ecosystems and pathogen population biology: exploiting interactions
  8. Microbial induction of resistance to pathogens
  9. Trade-offs associated with induced resistance
  10. Topical induction of inducers for disease control
  11. Integration of induced resistance in crop production
  12. Exploitation of induced resistance: a commercial perspective
  13. Induced resistance in crop protection: the future, drivers and barriers
