This publication was once written in accordance with major contemporary advances in realizing the mechanisms of parasitism within the Orobanchaceae, and breakthroughs within the regulate of the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche. It contains 26 contributions by means of across the world well-known best scientists. the most publication chapters are grouped into parts:
· half I – The Orobanchaceae and Their Parasitic Mechanisms
· half II – The Weedy Orobanchaceae and Their Control
The first half offers state-of-the-art details on all key elements of plant parasitism, comparable to the constitution, improvement and serve as of the haustorium; nutrient move and the body structure of the parasite-host organization; host response to parasitic vegetation; seed creation and germination; the strigolactones and host-parasite signaling mechanisms; the parasite genome, phylogenetics, evolution and epigenetics; and ecology. issues of the second one half comprise: the matter posed by means of the weedy parasites; inhabitants range and dynamics; molecular analysis of seed banks; and unique dialogue of some of the administration options, together with agronomic, chemical and biotechnological methods, in addition to host breeding for resistance, allelopathy and organic keep an eye on.
This booklet is meant for plant scientists, collage teachers and scholars, agronomists and weed experts, breeders and farmers, extension group of workers and specialists in tropical and subtropical agriculture.
