Glyphosate is a popular global post-emergent perennial herbicide. This volume is a comprehensive review of glyphosate's history, properties, chemistry, biology, formulation, technology, enzymology, and structure/activity relationship. The discussion covers glyphosate's unique environmental properties, broad range of application, soil inactivity, soil and plant metabolism, low toxicity, and uptake and transport in plants. It also covers the syntheses of hundreds of analogs and derivatives and clarifies glyphosate's molecular mode of action and its effect on the target enzyme EPSP synthase.

Review:


"Glyphosate, the world's most famous herbicide has generated a lot of interest among scientists. Indeed, between one and two hundred scientific communications are being published every year. As such, this herbicide deserved this monograph which was written by three scientists from Monsanto, the chemical company that discovered glyphosate. . . . The book is well presented, it even contains some color plates. . . . The authors have compiled thousands of references and lots of references are cited at the end of each chapter . . . The book is not directly aimed at plant physiologists but they will be interested by the chapters dealing with transport, interactions, molecular mode of action in plants, tolerance, and transformation of plants, and may find some interest in the other parts of the book. Considering the tremendous amount and the quality of information in the book, the price is reasonable."--Journal of Plant Physiology
