023 - Plant and Animal Defense Mechanisms
Paul Andersen describes how plants and animals defend themselves against pathogens. He begins by discussing the hypersensitive response in plants as a nonspecific form of immune response. He then discusses both the humoral and cell-mediated immune response in mammals. A brief discussion of the chicken pox, small pox and HIV is included.
