This single-source reference provides the latest information on nearly all of the phytoalexins of crop plants studied worldwide over the past 50 years - describing experimental approaches to the research of specific plants and methods of isolation and characterization. The book supplies in-depth coverage of cotton, soybean, groundnut, citrus, mustard, grapevine, potato, pepper, sweet potato, yam, sesame, tea, tobacco, pea, pigeon pea, chickpea, sugar beet, barley, rice, wheat, forage crops, plus medicinal plants, forest trees, and other plants.
Highlighting new phytoalexins as well as their structures and characteristics, Handbook of Phytoalexin Metabolism and Action reviews the history of phytoalexin research; critically discusses the role of phytoalexins in disease resistance; delineates the molecular aspects of phytoalexin production; examines the elicitation of phytoalexins, signal transduction, and gene regulation; describes biosynthesis, toxicity, detoxification mechanisms, and mode of action; furnishes a novel approach to plant disease control management; and looks toward future areas of research.

"The researchers in plant pathology, biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, biotechnology, natural products chemistry, chemotaxonomy and plant breeding will find this book greatly useful. The methodology provided for each crop should encourage readers to devise their own experiments for research or teaching. This book will serve as an excellent reference for teachers and students of plant pathology and biotechnology." - Cellulose Chemistry and Technology ." . .interesting. . .will inspire. . .further research. . . . . .useful." ---Acta Physiologiae Plantarum ." . .of great interest and value." ---Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science
