Synopses & Reviews
Details the various physiological responses in plants caused by microbially derived phytohormones--examining the microbial synthesis of the five primary classes of plant hormones. Exploring novel methods for improving symbiotic associations vital for plant growth and development.
Book News Annotation:
A comprehensive presentation on microbial production of the primary classes of plant hormones and their effects on plant growth and development. An introductory chapter that provides an overview of microorganism-plant interactions is followed by separate chapters on each of the major plant hormones: auxins, gibberelins, cytokinins, ethylene, and abscisic. For each of the five classes of hormones, the chapters provide a historical review of their discovery, physiological actions, biochemistry, biosynthesis and metabolism in plants and rhizosphere microorganisms, modes of action, production in pure culture and in soil, role in pathogenesis, and the physiological effects of microbially derived PGRs.
