This 744 page book provides the papers from the scientists who presented their research results at the 12th International Congress on Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions held December 2005 in Merida in Yucatan, Mexico. The editors, from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Cuernavaca, describe the Congress as “a feast of great science, exploring the cutting edge aspects of plant-microbe interactions.” Readers, too, will find a feast of information in this book as IS-MPMI is making a limited supply available to those who did not attend the Congress.

The book is organized around 17 research themes: •Recognition of Pathogens by Plants; •Down-Stream Signalling Events in Plant-Microbe Recognition; •Plant Cellular and Physiological Responses in Plant-Microbe Interactions; •Plant Molecular Mechanisms of Resistance to Microbes; •The Innate Immune Response in Plant-Microbe and Animal-Microbe Interactions; •Post-Transcriptional Regulation and Gene Silencing; •Cell-Cell Communication; •Ecology and Evolution in the Interactions between Plant and Microbes; •Biocontrol and Quorum Sensing; •Virulence Effectors and Molecular Mimicry; •Interactions between Plants and Virus; •Interactions of Plants and Symbiotic Bacteria; •Interactions between Plants and Mycorrhizal Fungi; •Interactions between Pathogenic Fungi and Plants; •Interactions between Plants and Nematodes, •Plants and Insects and •Innate Immune Response in Animals.

Hundreds of scientists have contributed to this work which delivers the advances of this fast-moving field of molecular plant-microbe interactions in a single essential resource. This hardcover reference comes complete with Indexes by both subject and author.
