Molecular Host Plant Resistance to Pests
Molecular Host Plant Resistance to Pests examines environmentally safe and integrated techniques for effective pest management. Offering more than 1500 references for further exploration of the topic, this reference details the bioactivity, biosynthetic pathways, mechanisms of action, and genetic regulation for improved methods of crop protection and analyzes host plant resistance mechanisms for development of enhanced insect management programs and agricultural ecosystems. This reference discusses the morphological and phenological bases of plant resistance and the current molecular studies on the chemistry, classification, and occurrence of a variety of chemical constituents.
