This timely book provides an overview of the anatomical, chemical, and developmental features contributing to plant defense, with an emphasis on plant responses that are induced by wounding or herbivore attack. The book first introduces general concepts of direct and indirect defenses, followed by a focused review of the different resistance traits. Finally, signal perception and transduction mechanism for the activation of plant defense responses are discussed.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "'Induced Plant Resistance to Herbivory' edited by Andreas Schaller contains three major sections comprising a total of 21 chapters. ... A broader and more complete overview of induced plant defences against herbivores would have made the book more interesting for a broader reader-ship. ... every chapter gives a detailed insight into a fascinating topic and is certainly worth to read for those who are working in the area and are in search for a rapid update on their own or a closely related research topic." (Martin Heil, Basic and Applied Ecology, Vol. 10, 2009)
