The objectives of the present study were, (i) to investigate the antifungal potential of methanolic extracts of different parts of a brassicaceous weeds Coronopus didymus against F.
Remarkable insights into the evolutionary potential of plants to respond to elevated soil Zn have recently been made through detailed anatomical, physiological, chemical, genetic and molecular characterizations of the brassicaceous Zn hyperaccumulators Thlaspi caerulescens and Arabidopsis halleri.
The tissues of brassicaceous plants contain many secondary compounds including glucosinolates (GSLs), which, upon disruption of tissues, are hydrolysed to form toxic compounds including isothiocyanates (ITCs) (Bending and Lincoln 1999).
Furthermore, since root maggots are pests of several brassicaceous vegetable crops (e.g., Coaker and Finch, 1971; Ellis, 1988), it should also be possible to introgress these genes for resistance to other species of Brassica.
There are several different growth forms: grasses (Uniola paniculata and Schizachyrium littorale); conspicuous herbaceous plants and several brassicaceous species of the genus Cakile; creeping plants like Ipomoea pes-caprae or the legume Canavalia rosea, with runners up to 98 ft (30 m) long; clump-formers like the euphorbiaceous Croton punctatus or the fabaceous Cassia [= Chamaecrista] chamaecristoides; and shrubs 7-10 ft (2-3 m) high, such as Suriana maritima, the only representative of the family Surianaceae; and the polygonaceous sea grape Coccoloba uvifera.

Each ORN class showed a narrow response spectrum, with some ORNs specialized for green leaf volatiles and ([+ or -])-linalool that are present in brassicaceous hosts, while several other ORNs responded to 2 non-host volatile sesquiterpenes, (E)-[beta]-farnesene and germacrene D, as well as (E)-[beta]-caryophyllene, a host-related sesquiterpene volatile.

Brassicaceous plants (e.g., Brassica, Sinapsis and Limnanthes species) as a green manure cover crop may provide some biocontrol properties when they are incorporated into the soil.
