Microbial Endophytes: Prospects for Sustainable Agriculture discusses practical and theoretical aspects of the use of endophytic microorganisms in agriculture, providing insights to the basic and advanced biotechnological application for long-term crop production. Chapters have been designed to deal with the various aspects of endophytic microorganisms including isolation, enumeration, characterization procedures, diversity anlaysis, role as biofertilizer, biocontrol agent, and microbial inoculants.
Framed to discuss the present as well as future potential role of microbial endophytes in biotic and abiotic stress management, bioremediation, bioactive compounds production, as well as applications in the field of nanotechnology, this book provides a single-volume resource valuable to academics and researchers interested in microbiology, agricultural sciences, and biotechnology.
- Explores aspects of sustainable agriculture by using endophytic microorganism such as bacteria, fungi and actinobacteria
- Presents insights into the use of endophytes as biofertilizer and biocontrol agents in sustainable agriculture
- Relates endophyte organisms and nano-technology
