Eighteen contributions from scientists from around the world summarize recent advances in the use of recombinant protease inhibitors (PIs) to protect plants from insects, parasitic nematodes, and pathogens. Coverage includes the response of plants to herbivorous pests, the response of insects to dietary PIs, and the environmental risks of recombinant PIs, as well as strategies for the choice and development of effective PIs, and the practical and industrial aspects of recombinant PI expression in plants such as the potato, sweet potato, and rapeseed. The volume also includes information on alternative uses of recombinant PIs expressed in plants, including in medicine and food science. Michaud, author or co-author of seven contributions, is with the phytology department, Laval U., Canada. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( more
