Allelochemicals play a great role in managed and natural ecosystems.

Apart from plant growth, allelochemicals also may influence nutrient

dynamics, mycorrhizae, soil chemical characteristics, and microbial

ecology. Synergistic action of various factors may better explain plant

growth and distribution in natural systems. The book emphasizes the role

of allelochemicals in shaping the structure of plant communities in a

broader ecological perspective.

The book addresses the following questions: (1) How do allelochemicals

influence different components of the ecosystem in terms of shaping

community structure? (2) Why is it difficult to demonstrate interference

by allelochemicals (i.e., allelopathy) in a natural system in its

entirety? Despite a large amount of existing literature on allelopathy,

why are ecologists still skeptical about the existence of allelopathy in

nature? (3) Why are there only scarce data on aquatic ecosystems? (4)
