In recent years, our understanding of the mechanisms involved in a plant's resistance to attack by disease, has seen major advances.

Molecular Aspects of Plant Disease Resistance provides cutting edge reviews of each of the major aspects of the subject . It includes contributions from many of the world's leading researcher in the area. Coverage includes the evolution of plant-virus interactions and plant resistance loci, the role of plant secondary metabolites, plant systemic resistance, oomycete genomics, intracellular immune receptors, transcriptional reprogramming, fungal biotrophy, chemical ecology of plant-insect interactions, bacterial Type III effectors and host perception of PAMPs

This book will be of interest to all those involved in plant-pathogen interactions including plant and agricultural scientists, molecular biologists and microbiologists.
