Flower anatomyChapter 32: Plant Defense. Plants have developed mechanisms to protect themselves from: viruses, bacteria, fungi, worms, parasitic plants. Pathogens enter plants through damaged tissue or stomata.
Potato Blight. 1st line of defense for plants. Biotrophic pathogens versus necrotrophic pathogens. Parasitic plants. Plant immune systems: basal versus specific. Hypersensitive response.
Systemic acquired resistance. 7 Levels of plant defense. Herbivory. Molecular: terpenoids, phenolics, alkaloids.
Plant compounds used in medicines. Cellular: central vacuoles. Tissue: tough sclenchma fibers. Organ: hairs, spines, silica plates. Organismal: entire physiology. Population:coordinated behavior.
Community: predatory animals. Symbionts of ants and acacia. Constitutive defenses versus inducible defenses
