The presenter author is professor in a public university since 2000. I got my PhD working with plant pathology, specifically the development of alternative methods for controlling plant diseases caused by fungi, bacteria and nematodes. To reach this purpose, we use extracts obtained from medicinal plants and fungi, as well as high diluted solutions (homeopathy), in spite to induce resistance defense mechanisms in treated plants against the pathogens. Some of plant defense mechanisms we study are pathogenesis related proteins like chitinases, beta-1.3 glucanases and peroxidases, phenolic compounds and their key enzyme phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, and reactive oxygen species as hydrogen peroxide and superoxide anion.
