The term 'Allelopathy' was coined by Prof. Hans Molisch, a German Plant Physiologist in 1937. However, no standard methods are being used by various workers due to lack of compendium on the Techniques, hence, the results obtained are not easily comparable with each others. Till now lot of allelopathy resech has been done in various fields of Agricultural and Plant Sciences. However, there is no compilation of various research methods used. Every scientist is conducting research in his/her own way. It is causing lot of problems to researchers working in underdeveloped/Third World Countries in small towns without Library facilities. Therefore, to make available the standard methods for conducting allelopathy research independently, this multi-volume book has been planned. Allelopathy is multi-disciplinary area of research, hence, volumes have been planned for each discipline. The book is devided into 3 Sections. Section I: Laboratory Studies includes 7 chapters (Fluorescence of biologically active compounds in plant secretory cells, Allelopathic effects of dominant tree species in forests, Enzymes Bioassays, Laboratory Bioassay with Agroforestry trees and rhizosphere soil, Hydro-ponics, Laboratory Bioassays, Physiological responses of plants to phenolic compounds). Section II: Pot Culture Studies has 1 chapter. and Section 3. Field Studies includes 4 chapters (Trees Physiological and Biochemical Processes, Multistorey Agroforestry Systems, Enzymes activity and IAA contents in soils, Morphological measurements). This book will serve as ready reference in the laboratory or class room and provides detailed methods for field studies in agriculture and allied fields including allelopathy. Information provided can be used to determine the different allelochemicals in various types of Agro-ecosystems. It will be useful for Under-graduate and Post-graduate students and researcher workers, soil scientists, biochemists, chemists and other plant science specialists. We have tried to provide appropriate methods to determine allelochemicals in soils. The users of this book can select suitable methods, according to the available Authors.
