Sample text

The dead outer scales of the varieties of onion that are resistant to the fungus Colletotrichum circinans have been shown to contain catechol and protocatechuic acid. These compounds dissolve in water and the antifungal solution protects the living parts of the plant (Walker & Stahmann 1955). The resistance of Phaseofus funatus (lima bean) varieties to Phytophthera phaseofi (downy mildew) is related to the bean's content of a resorcinol-type compound (Valenta & Sisler 1962) while the resistance of potato varieties to Phytophtheru infestans is determined by levels of o-diphenol.

Our research has been concerned primarily with aluminium and manganese toxicities in acidic soils and with iron unavailability in calcareous soils. Our PLANT ADAPTATION T O MINERAL STRESS 25 aims are: (1) to identify current and potential mineral stress factors in problem soils; (2) to screen plant germplasm for stress tolerance; (3) to collaborate with plant breeders in developing superior plant genotypes for specific problem soils; (4) to determine the physiological and biochemical mechanisms of differential plant adaptation to mineral stress; ( 5 ) to use plant physiological traits to refine screening procedures and improve soil-plant management practices; (6) to use plant genotypes as indicators of potential mineral stress problems; and (7) to characterize interactions among mineral stress and other environmental factors such as water, light, air pollutants, temperature, pathogens, rhizobia and mycorrhizae.
