Author Pirttilä, Anna Maija.
Title Endophytes of forest trees [electronic resource] : biology and applications / Anna Maria Pirttilä, A. Carolyn Frank, editors.
Publication Info Dordrecht ; New York : Springer, c2011.



Descript x, 319 p. : ill. (some col.), map ; 24 cm.
Contents pt. 1. Diversity of forest tree endophytes -- pt. 2. Endophytes in tree growth promotion and stress tolerance -- pt. 3. Abiotic factors affecting endophyte diversity -- pt. 4. Bacterial endophytes in phytoremediation -- pt. 5. The promise of endophytes in biocontrol of trees -- pt. 6. Endophytes as sources of new drug compounds.
Note "Found in every plant species, the diversity of endophytic micro-organisms can be extremely high within different plant organs and tissue types. In trees, their ecological roles with respect to host tree can vary from latent pathogens or saprophytes to neutral commensalists and mutualists. Given their high diversity, and their bio-active nature, endophytes are currently being associated with a role in tree health against insect herbivores and fungal pathogens, as well as improving tree properties in phytoremediation. Meanwhile there is increasing interest in the potential of some tree endophytes as new sources of drug compounds"--P.4 of cover.
