Biochemical Responses of Plants to Fungal Attack

  • Leroy L. Creasy
Part of the Recent Advances in Phytochemistry book series (RAPT, volume 19)


This review will concentrate on developments in the literature since the publication of excellent reviews edited by Bailey and Mansfield) and by Wood2 which should be consulted for a general overview. It is written with the preformed conclusion that active defense mechanisms are involved in fungi-plant interactions resulting in the resistance of some plants to some fungi.
