Covers traditional areas in plant chemical ecology and addresses fundamental issues on the involvement of phytochemicals in signaling within and between species, applications of the knowledge gained from such studies, and evolutionary origins. The 12 papers pivot on the themes of the multifunctional roles of many phytochemicals, the power of molecular techniques for studying biosynthetic pathways and gene function, the central role of natural products in pathogenesis and disease resistance, and promising areas for future research and applications. Microbes are considered in their broadest sense, encompassing bacteria, fungi, and nematodes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
