The term ‘Allelopathy’ was coined by Professor Hans Molisch in 1937. It includes
both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of plants on each other including microorganisms.
Most of the research in this field has been conducted in developed countries during
the last 30-40 years. The first English Book ‘Allelopathy’ written by Dr. E.L. Rice
was published in 1974 and thereafter, many books have appeared on its various aspects
and thousands of research papers on various aspects of allelopathy have been published.
But till now, there is no Comprehensive Bibiliography on Allelopathy. Besides, till
to day, This indicates the great interest World over in this new discipline, because
of its importance in modern Sustainable Agriculture. It has been found that Allelopathy
offers great potential to (a) increase agricultural production (food grains, vegetables,
fruits, forestry), (b) to decrease harmful effects of modern agricultural practices
[multiple cropping, leaching losses from N fertilizers, indiscriminate use of pesticides
(weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, nematicides), tolerant/resistant biotypes
in pest] on soil health/ productivity and environment and (c) to maintain soil productivity
and a pollution free environment for our future generations. It is likely that in
the near future allelopathy will be used in crop production, crop protection, agroforestry
and agrohorticultural practices in developed and developing countries. Allelopathy
may become one of the strategic sciences to reduce the environmental pollution and
to increase agricultural production in Sustainable Agriculture of the 21st Century.
Thus, it is now receiving more attention from agricultural and bioscientists.
In spite of the fact, that now much information is available on different aspects
of Allelopathy, but there is no Comprehensive Bibiliography on Allelopathy,
which provides complete and updated information about the published allelopathy
literature at the International level. Allelopathy scientists interested in finding
literature on a particular aspect have to consult several Books, Journals, Annual
Reports and Magazines etc. This results in wastage of valuable time and energy of
the scientists. Although such information may be available to the Western World
through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of
allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of
allelopathy is greater. In view of this, Prof. S.S.Narwal has prepared this ANNOTATED
BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ALLELOPATHY, which has taken more than 10- Years, valuable time
and energy to complete this herculean task. It has 10724 Abstracts in 1838 Pages
(A4 size Pages), hence, it is very expansive and to Print and send by Post, thus,
prepared in PDF Edition. It is devided in 5- Volumes. It is the first Comprehensive
Bibiliography on Allelopathy. It includes References up to 2012 and will be up dated
Annually with latest literature. Its main aim is to make available Allelopathy Literature
to the bonafide scientists/students worldwide for their scientific use. In 1989,
I visited Department of Allelopathy, Central Botanical Garden, Kiev, Ukaraine. There
I saw large collection of Allelopathy literature of Prof. A.M. Grodzinsky, very
prominent Internationally renowned Allelopathy Scientist. There I first conceived
idea to prepare the Bibliography. After return from Kiev in 1990, I established
Indian Society of Allelopathy and organized First International Conference on Allelopathy
in 1992 with Prof. E.L. Rice as Chief Guest. In 1992, Dr. V.V. Rao gave me 150 Reprints
on Allelopathy. Then Prof. MAB Mallik, USA sent me Reprints from Prof. Rice collection
after Prof. Rice death. In 2000 Prof. Rick Willis, Department of Botany, University
of Melbourne invited me to his Lab. to prepare this Bibiliography, which laid the
Foundation of this Book.
CONTENTS: All the References (10724) are numbered continuously, listed year-wise
and within the year Alphabetically. Each reference includes Author(s), Year, Title
of paper, Abstract, Name of Journal, Volume Number, full pages. If published in
Book/Report/Dissertation, the full details of Publication viz., Author/Editor, Title,
Name of Publisher, Place of Publication are given.
This Book will be very useful for the allelopathy scientists and graduate students
in agriculture (Agronomists, Entomologists, Nematologists, Plant Pathologists, Horticulturists,
Plant Breeders, Agroforesters, Soil Scientists) and biosciences (Biochemists, Organic
Chemists, Microbiologists, Limnologists), Environmentalists and Farmers, as well
as organizations engaged in sustainable agriculture and organic agriculture.
