and Pathogens as Bioherbicidal Agents 1.
compounds might have inhibited chlorophyll content in canary grass seedlings either by interfering with the biosynthesis of photosynthetic pigments or by enhancing their degradation by inducing oxidative stress and generation of reactive oxygen species or both.
The mode of action of allelochemicals
is extensive and is related to several metabolic processes such as photosynthesis, cellular respiration, hormonal balance, the depolarization and permeability of membranes affecting nutrient uptake, cell elongation and production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) (Gniazdowska and Bogatek, 2005; Al-Wakeel et al.
Blue gum produces a thick litter layer and allelochemicals
(natural substances produced by plants that can suppress growth), which may inhibit not only its own germination, but also that of other plants (Molina et al.
Wong, "Mimosine, the allelochemical
from the leguminous tree Leucaena leucocephala, selectively enhances cell proliferation in dinoflagellates," Applied and Environmental Microbiology, vol.
We can use allelopatic compounds to control weed but allelochemicals
often are in low concentration and interaction with each other.
has a high potential of allelochemicals
in the form of phenols and essential oils.
It inhibits the germination and growth of neighboring plants by releasing various allelochemicals
such as water soluble phenolics and sesquiterpene lactones including parthenin and coronopilin (Belz et al.

opposita revealed the presence of various types of compounds, including flavanones (16) and 3-O-benzoyl or 3-O-cinnamoylabiatane diterpenoids (17), some of which possess antitumour, insect antifeedant, antimicrobial and allelochemical
