Different pathways through life
Biochemical aspects of plant biology and medicine

In honor to Prof. Erich F. Elstner
on the occasion of his 60th birthday

Editors: Andrea Denke, Kerstin Dornisch, Frank Fleischmann, Johanna Graßmann, Ingrid Heiser, Susanne Hippeli, Wolfgang Oßwald and Harald Schempp

This book is dedicated to Prof. Dr. E.F. Elstner on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Colleagues and friends of Prof. Elstner have met to publish this "Festschrift" with contributions covering biochemistry, medicine, plant physiology and plant pathology. This highly informative text book discusses the critical role of the formation and the significance of reactive oxygen species in biology. Containing over 1000 citations, tables and drawings it gives a broad and detailed overview of the following topics:

· Biochemistry of activated oxygen
· Oxidants and antioxidants in human and plants
· Signaling in phytopathology
· Impacts and detection of pollutants
