Responses of Plants to Pathogens
Although changes in structure, function, and metabolism which occur during pathogenesis will be discussed in separate sections, they are obviously interrelated and inseparable in diseased plants. Any change in one may cause or be caused by a change in one or both of the others. Perhaps more important than the changes themselves is the sequence in which they occur. In this chapter, special attention will be given to the few diseases in which the sequence of all three types of changes have been studied with particular emphasis on those that occur during early stages of pathogenesis.
