Elsevier, 27.08.2002 - 772 Seiten
This book provides current information on synthesis of plant hormones, how their concentrations are regulated, and how they modulate various plant processes. It details how plants sense and tolerate such factors as drought, salinity, and cold temperature, factors that limit plant productivity on earth. It also explains how plants sense two other environmental signals, light and gravity, and modify their developmental patterns in response to those signals. This book takes the reader from basic concepts to the most up-to-date thinking on these topics.
* Provides clear synthesis and review of hormonal and environmental regulation of plant growth and development
* Contains more than 600 illustrations
supplementary information on techniques and/or related topics of interest
