Molecular Ecotoxicology of Plants
Edited by Sandermann, H.
Hardcover XIV, 241 pp, 42 illus, 8 in color, 9 tabs ISBN 9783540009528
A well-structured and comprehensive summary of the strategies and several case studies
for applying molecular plant genomics in the fields of plant ecotoxicology and plant ecology.
With an increasing number of plant genome projects now being completed, there arises the
need to develop plant functional genomics. The book concentrates on ecological functions
and relates molecular stress responses and signalling pathways to environmental interactions.
This paves the way for uncovering new mechanisms of plant fitness, population dynamics and
evolution, and new possibilities for plant breeding and sustainable agriculture. Topics covered
include: definition and up-scaling of molecular ecotoxicology; signalling substances, enzymes
and genes involved in defence against pathogens, xenobiotics, ozone, UV-B and further
environmental stressors; and manipulation of plant signal transduction by soil bacteria.
