About the Book

Examining intercellular infections in certain plant species that lead to a symbiotic relationship between the host and its endophytic microbes, this volume demonstrates the ability of many types of endosymbionts, acting as a unit with hosts to better survive, compete and reproduce. Practical applications of such endophytes are also discussed, for example, pharmaceutical developments and agricultural management.

Reviews

"…Two of the leading workers on grass endophytes have now marshalled 27 authors to produce this 17 chapter treatise…. …certainly a work for the shelves of all major mycological libraries. "

---Mycological Research, 2000
