Higher plants are routinely exposed to microorganisms, both above and below the ground. Yet, each plant is susceptible to infection by only a handful of them. Indeed, as with animals and microorganisms, susceptibility of plants to infectious agents is an exception in nature, while resistance is the rule. The special properties which enable microorganisms to inflict economically or biologically significant damage on living plants are a main theme of research in plant pathology. Equally interesting, and at least as important in scope, are the properties which make plants susceptible to infection, the biochemical mechanisms by which the cellular damage is sustained, and the nature of plant resistance to microorganisms with a demonstrated pathogenic potential on other plants often within the same narrow taxonomic group (species, genus, etc.).
