This booklet used to be written according to major fresh advances in realizing the mechanisms of parasitism within the Orobanchaceae, and breakthroughs within the regulate of the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche. It involves 26 contributions via the world over well-known top 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 info 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. themes of the second one half contain: the matter posed through the weedy parasites; inhabitants range and dynamics; molecular prognosis of seed banks; and certain dialogue of a number of the administration recommendations, together with agronomic, chemical and biotechnological ways, in addition to host breeding for resistance, allelopathy and organic keep an eye on.
This booklet is meant for plant scientists, college teachers and scholars, agronomists and weed experts, breeders and farmers, extension team of workers and specialists in tropical and subtropical agriculture.
