The root system is a vital part of the plant and therefore understanding roots and their functioning is key to agricultural, plant and soil scientists.

In Plant Roots Professor Peter Gregory brings together recent developments in techniques and an improved understanding of plant and soil interactions to present a comprehensive look at this important relationship, covering:

  • Root response to, and modification of, soils
  • Genetic control of roots’ responses to the environment
  • Use of modern techniques in imaging, molecular biology and analytical chemistry
  • Practical exploitation of root characters 

This book will be a vital tool for plant, crop, soil and agricultural scientists, plant physiologists, environmental scientists, ecologists and hydrologists. It will be a valuable addition to libraries in universities, agricultural colleges and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught.

About the Author:

Professor Peter Gregory is internationally known and respected for his work on roots and is Director of the Scottish Crop Research Institute, Dundee, UK.

Review:

"Each chapter provides detailed discussion backed up by numerous references, diagrams, graphs and tables . . . all of excellent quality. . . I expect Peter Gregory's very informative book to become the subject's standard text and in the possession of anyone interested in how roots grow and function."
Experimental Agriculture

"This marvelous book attempts to cover all aspects of plant root growth. This is a daunting task, but Professor Gregory has been very successful."

"With this book, we finally have an introductory book on plant roots that can be read, cover-to-cover, by undergraduate and/or graduate students and researchers..."

"This book builds chapter by chapter, leading the reader to a thorough understanding of the impact of roots on the environment and the environment on roots with its many attendant implications."
Richard W. Zobel in Crop Science, Volume 46, Issue 6, November-December 2006 (Crop Science Society of America)

"This book is very well designed for its target readership in advanced university or college courses that cover soil - plant relationships, as well as soil, plant, agricultural and environmental scientists who are seeking to widen their knowledge of root growth and functions. Like this reviewer, they will find many useful references for further reading. Last, and by no means least, the very clear style of writing means that the book should be attractive to readers whose native language is not english."
Annals of Botany, 1-2, 2007

"...plant roots are often forgotten even by botanists, who focus instead on foliage laves, frilly flowers, harvested fruit and the finale, and/or starting point, seeds. Author Gregory Peter, Director of the Scottish Crop Research Institute, is a root specialist...[hence]...Root anatomy and function are the subjects of this book. Each chapter provides numerous reverences, diagrams, graphs and tables, and one includes a series of colour photographs. This book will be a useful reference tool for plant, crop and soil scientists, plant physiologists, and ecologists. It will benefit libraries in Universities, agricultural colleges and plant research institutes."
Dorothea Bedigan in Plant Science Bulletin, Volume 53, Issue 2, July-August 2007.
