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
* Single-authored text provides uniformity of presentation and integration of the subject matter
* References listed alphabetically in each section

Recent discoveries in plant growth and development, fueled by molecular and genetic techniques, have revolutionized plant biology. The pace of change has been rapid. New insights into hormonal homeostasis, hormonal and environmental regulation, and interactions among signaling pathways of hormones and environmental factors are gained each year. Plant Growth and Development is intended to prepare senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students for this fast-moving discipline. The text is organized into five sections: special aspects of plant growth and development; structure and metabolism of hormones; hormonal regulation of developmental and physiological processes; molecular basis of hormone action; and environmental regulation of growth. Suitable for an upper level or graduate course in hormonal and environmental plant physiology and/or plant growth and development, it will also be useful as a supplemental text for courses in agronomy, forestry, and horticulture. In addition, it is a reference for any scientist interested in plant growth, hormones, and development and/or the environmental factors that regulate plant life.
