Advances in Botanical Research is a multi-volume publication that brings together reviews by recognized experts on subjects of importance to those involved in botanical research. For more than thirty years, Advances in Botanical Research has earned a reputation for excellence in the field. For those working on plant pathology, Advances in Plant Pathology has also carved a niche in the plant sciences during its decade of publication. Academic Press has merged Advances in Plant Pathology into Advances in Botanical Research. The plant science community will find that the merger of these two serials will provide one comprehensive resource for the field. To ensure complete coverage, John Andrews and Inez Tommerup, the editors of Advances in Plant Pathology, have joined the editorial board of the new series, which will include equal coverage of plant pathology and botany in both thematic and mixed volumes. The first few volumes of the new series will be slanted toward botany or plant pathology; however, future eclectic volumes will be fully integrated. The resulting synergy of these two serials greatly benefits the plant science community by providing a more comprehensive resource under one roof. The joint aim is to continue to include the very best articles, thereby maintaining the status of a high impact factor review series.

Articles in this volume of Advances in Botanical Research incorporating Advances in Plant Pathology cover a range of subjects of interest to plant scientists. Lee evaluates the mechanisms which control the growth preferences many plants show for either acidic or calcareous sols, including up-to-date information on plant ion transport processes and calcium signalling. The article by Ashmore and Marshall considers the effects of ozone on the physiology and yield of crop plants and identifies thresholds for impact on crops in less-developed countries. They show that ozone can adversely affect crop yield, which will be an increasingly important issue internationally in the future.
Jenkins writes about the use of molecular methods to analyse the signal transduction networks involved in plant responses to environmental stimuli. He shows that plants respond to different stimuli in a co-ordinated and integrated way to switch on groups of genes. Amtmann and Sanders explore salinity tolerance by discussing sodium transport pathways across cell membranes, and propose a simple model to show how plants cope with salty environments. The article by Lazof and Bernstein focuses on the inhibition of shoot growth by NaC1. They propose that the primary cause of salt-induced growth inhibition is a disturbance of mineral nutrition in areas where cells are expanding and dividing.
"The book is a pleasure to read...thoughtful approaches and innovative ideas are standard. It also has strong, applied implications (remote sensing, restoration ecology just to mention a few aspects) and the potential to become a useful took for everybody who cares about the level and scale he/she works at and consequences scale can have for his/her research."
