Plant Resistance to Arthropods: Molecular and Conventional by C. Michael Smith

By C. Michael Smith

Arthropod resistant vegetation decrease pesticide pollutants, alleviate starvation and enhance human foodstuff. Plant Resistance to Arthropods - Molecular and standard methods synthesizes new information regarding the environmental merits of plant resistance, transgenic resistance, the molecular bases of resistance, and using molecular markers to map resistance genes. Readers are offered in-depth descriptions of strategies to quantify resistance, components affecting resistance expression, and the deployment of resistance genes. New information regarding gene-for-gene interactions among resistant vegetation and arthropod biotypes is mentioned in addition to the new examples of utilizing arthropod resistant crops in built-in pest administration platforms.
