A state-of-the-art overview of the intricate functional virus/host relationships that allow a virus or viroid to move cell-to-cell and systemically through the plant, as well as from plant to plant, and, thus, to spread infection. The book also illustrates the mechanisms by which viruses overcome plant defence responses, such as RNA silencing. Arabidopsis is used as an illustration of a plant host eminently suitable for genetic approaches to identify novel players in plant/virus interactions.
