Abstract

The detailed review 'Using the CODIT model to explain secondary metabolites of xylem in defence systems of temperate trees against decay fungi' (Morris et al., 2020) breaks new ground in understanding the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites (SMs) that resist (1) the loss of sapwood function after wounding and (2) the spread of fungal infection. The review summarizes the current state of research and provides fingerposts for the direction of new research.
