The mechanisms are passive when they are independent of the pathogen. They are active when they follow changes in the host caused by the pathogen. Thus for a fungal pathogen, cell walls of a higher plant which are lignified before infection would be a passive defence mechanism if they decreased damage by impeding growth of the fungus. Not all plants bear their defenses on the surface. If thorns, spines, prickles, and trichomes are the spear brigade, idioblasts are the landmines. Specialized cells that contain a variety of defensive compounds, from razor-sharp crystals to pain-inducing chemicals, idioblasts detonate when the first line of defense has been breached. The.
