Sustainable Approaches to Controlling Plant Pathogenic Bacteria free pdf Plant diseases and changes in existing pathogens remain a constant threat to our forests, food, and fiber crops as well as landscape plants. However, many economically important pathosystems are largely unexplored and biologically relevant life stages of familiar systems remain poorly understood. In a multifaceted approach to plant pathogenic behavioral control, Sustainable Approaches to Controlling Plant Pathogenic Bacteria discusses the impact of plant pathogenic bacterial pathogenesis on scientific and economic levels. It introduces mechanisms, measuring tools, and controlling strategies you can use to meet the challenge of developing new and innovative ways to control plant diseases. The book covers many aspects of the activities of pathogenic bacteria that interact with plants. With chapters contributed by experts, the book focuses on: * Pathogenesis * Epidemiology * Forecasting systems * Control measures including diagnosis, quarantine, and eradication * Adoption of agro-traditional practices * Tools for the control of antibacterial polypeptides * Nutrient supplements * Metabolic substances from other organisms * Mechanisms of siderophores * Host resistances * Quorum sensing and quenching * Seed and foliar applications * Impact of plant pathogens on scientific and economic levels The editors' approach provides a broad perspective, including modern trends in ecology that consider plant pathogenic bacterial control from all angles. The discussions and reviews in the book cover a wide range of aspects of plant pathogenic bacterial pathogenicity, epidemiology, and impact on the food chain as well as strategies for control, which will help you develop sustainable methods for controlling plant diseases.
