Abstract

Plant and plant products are affected by a large number of plant pathogens among which fungal pathogens. These diseases play a major role in the current deficit of food supply worldwide. Various control strategies were developed to reduce the negative effects of diseases on food, fiber, and forest crops products. For the past fifty years fungicides have played a major role in the increased productivity of several crops in most parts of the world. Although fungicide treatments are a key component of disease management, the emergence of resistance, their introduction into the environment and their toxic effect on human, animal, non-target microorganisms and beneficial organisms has become an important factor in limiting the durability of fungicide effectiveness and usefulness. This book contains 25 chapters on various aspects of fungicide science from efficacy to resistance, toxicology and development of new fungicides that provides a comprehensive and authoritative account for the role of fungicides in modern agriculture.

Abstract

This book highlights modern techniques of research into Candida albicans, especially in terms of emerging and emerged pathogenic Candida species. It also looks at metabolic adaptation, resistance related to environmental stress and variety of nutrients, best performing plants that inhibit Candida's activities, interaction with other microbes, antifungal immunity mechanisms, and the posttherapeutic management of fungal infections. The book is a collection of very high impact research that includes a combination of biochemical, molecular biological, and medical microbiological innovative scientific techniques. It contains fascinating information that will help readers to explore and understand why C. albicans is different from other microbes. The authors describe this significant discovery using both bioinformatic and laboratory techniques and this uniqueness is the reason why C. albicans is a successful pathogenic yeast.

Abstract

Trichoderma is a genus of fungi that are present in all soils, where they are the most prevalent culturable fungi. They are also the most successful biofungicides used in today's agriculture. These green-colored fungi are well known for their antifungal and plant-growth-stimulating effects. This book provides comprehensive information on Trichoderma and its use in medical, agricultural and industrial applications. Section I focuses mainly on identification of Trichoderma species, and Section II is concerned with Trichoderma as a biological control agent. Chapters in these sections cover topics ranging from taxonomic status and biodiversity to biochemical analysis and bio-control application.
