Chemical defence by means of toxins poisonous to otherorganisms, be they animals or plants, is widespread amongstthe plant kingdom - including microorganisms as well. Thisbook embraces the analysis of a wide range of plant toxinsand this fills a gap in the plant pathology and ecologicalbiochemistry fields. The topics covered include toxicextracellular enzymes, host selective toxins, elicitors,phototoxins, aflatoxins, mycotoxins, and ecotoxic substancetests by pollen germination and growth. The analyticalprocedures, which are used to evaluate the toxins, arecovered in such a way that the reader is able to carry themout mostly solely by following the detailed descriptions.

Analytical Methods for Phytotoxins.- Quantitative Assays of Phytotoxins Using Plant Protoplasts and Isolated Cells.- Determination of Host-Selective Toxins.- Evaluating the Phototoxicity and Photogenotoxicity of Plant Secondary Compounds.- Toxic Extracellular Enzymes.- Analysis of Toxic Extracellular Polysaccharides.- Immunological Analysis of Mycotoxins.- Multi-Toxin TLC Methods for Aflatoxins, Ochratoxin A, Zearalenone and Sterigmatocystin in Foods.- Isolation and Characterization of Elicitors.- Identification and Characterization of Suppressors.- Screening for Plant Antioxidants.- Methods for the Analysis of Isoprene Emission from Leaves.- Analysis of Ecotoxic Agents Using Pollen Tests.- The Determination of the Allelopathic Potential of Pollen and Nectar.- Determination of Cyanide and Cyanogenic Glycosides from Plants.
