As befits a discussion of non energy-conserving respiratory electron transÂ port, this review may generate more heat than light. Nevertheless, the intent is to bring under scrutiny physiological and biochemical aspects of eNÂ resistant, alternative path respiration that remain unsettled, if not perplexÂ ing. Since the early recognition by Okunuki in 1939 of the eo resistance of lily pollen respiration-with the attendant suggestion of a so-called alternaÂ tive path-as well as the observed stimulation of potato tuber respiration by eN reported by Hanes and Barker in 1931 (38), there has been a persistent examination of the reality and characteristics of the so-called eN-resistant, alternative path in higher plants, capsulated in four recent reviews (24, 39, 75, 100). It serves no purpose to repeat the conventional wisdom about the composition of the ubiquitous cytochrome path and the location of the alternative path branch point. Suffice it to say, there is considerable agreement that the branching occurs at or near coenzyme Q and that the alternative path is nonphosphorylating (3, 79; cf 126). Many significant and profoundly interesting aspects of the subject will not be discussed in this review (e.g. the occurrence and genetics of CN resistance in the fungi),
