By Paul A. Horgen, Alan Castle (auth.), Professor Dr. Frank Kempken (eds.)

During this quantity the relevance of fungi for agriculture is mentioned in 4 sections. the 1st one 'Food and Fodder creation' matters the applying and power of mushrooms, straw enrichment, and nutrients or crop spoilage. the subsequent part 'Mycotoxins and detoxing' bargains with the biosynthesis of mycotoxins and using fungi in organopollutant degradation. a wide part entitled 'Disease regulate, Diagnostic, and administration' covers a variety of elements of organic keep watch over (fungi, bugs, and weeds), diagnostics with emphasis at the instance of Magnaporthegrisea, and disorder administration with concentrate on the real fungal pathogens Phoma, Fusarium, rusts and powdery mould. The final part 'Update on Host-Parasite Interactions' discusses sign transduction, avirulence determinants, phytotoxins, mobile wall degradation, and the coevolution of pathogenic fungi and grass hosts.

1990). White-rot fungi produce extracellular lignin-modifying enzymes, of which lignin-peroxidases (LiP) , manganesedependent peroxidase (MnP), laccase and H20zproducing oxidases (aryl-alcohol oxidase and glyoxaloxidase) are the most important (Kirk and Farrell 1987; Buswell 1992). The oxidative enzymes ligninase, manganese peroxidase and laccase may be defined as phenoloxidases. Both ligninase and mangane se peroxidase belong to the class of peroxidases (Tuor et al. 1995). According to their typical production patterns of extracellular lignolytic enzymes, white-rot fungi may be divided into four groups: (1) the LiPMnP group, (2) the MnP-Iaccase group, (3) the LiP-Iaccase group, and (4) the laccase-AAO group.
