9780865427426: Mechanisms in Plant Development

Intended for undergraduate and graduate courses in plant development, this book explains how the cells of a plant acquire and maintain their specific fates. Plant development is a continuous process occurring throughout the life cycle, with similar regulatory mechanisms acting at different stages and in different parts of the plant. Rather than focussing on the life cycle, the book is structured around these underlying mechanisms, using case studies to provide students with a framework to understand the many factors, both environmental and endogenous, that combine to regulate development and generate the enormous diversity of plant forms.


  • New approach to the study of plant development and a refreshing look at this fast-moving area.
  • Authors focus their discussion on the basic mechanisms which underpin plant development, tackling the fundamental question of how a single cell becomes a complex flowering plant from a cellular perspective.
  • An up-to-date, modern text in plant development for advanced level undergraduates and postgraduates in plant science.
  • Thought-provoking treatment of a difficult subject, the text will satisfy the needs of advanced level undergraduates and postgraduates in plant science.
  • Experimental case studies throughout.
  • The artwork from the book is available at www.blackwellpublishing.com/leyser

Book Description:

With the diverse teaching backgrounds of first year university students, the highly detailed traditional organic chemistry textbook does not provide an easily digestible presentation of the very basic information required by many students to begin their study of this exciting subject.Based on the highly successful and student friendly at a glance approach, with integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and graphics, Organic Chemistry at a Glance provides concise organic chemistry notes for students studying chemistry and related courses at undergraduate level. Graphical presentation of information is central to the book and facilitates the rapid assimilation and understanding of the basic concepts, principles and definitions of organic chemistry. It is not intended to replace existing organic chemistry textbooks, but to provide a tool with which the student can quickly, economically and confidently acquire, regularly review and revise the basic facts that underpin organic chemistry.

About the Author:

Ottoline Leyser is a reader in plant developmental genetics at the University of York.
