Davies, Peter J.
Plant hormones play a crucial role in controlling the way in which plants grow and develop. While metabolism provides the power and building blocks for plant life, it is the hormones that regulate the speed of growth of the individual parts and integrate them to produce the form that we recognize as a plant. In addition, hormones play a governing role in the process of reproduction. This book is a description of these natural chemicals: how they are synthesized and metabolized, how they act at both the organismal and molecular levels, how we measure them, and a description of some of the roles they play in regulating plant growth and development. This is the second edition of the highly acclaimed monograph published in 1987 under the title Plant Hormones and their Role in Plant Growth and Development. All chapters have been rewritten to include the latest information on plant hormones, and several totally new chapters have been included, particularly with reference to the molecular biology of plant hormones. The book is a selected collection of newly written, carefully integrated and illustrated reviews describing our knowledge of plant hormones and the experimental work that is the foundation of this information. It is directed at advanced students and professionals in the plant sciences: botanists, biochemists and molecular biologists; and those involved with the horticultural, agricultural and forestry sciences. It can serve as a text and guide for graduate level courses on plant hormones or plant growth and development, and as a supplement to courses on plant or comparative development. Scientists in other disciplines who wish to learn more about hormones and their role in plant development will also find this text of value.Davies, Peter J. is the author of 'Plant Hormones Physiology, Biochemistry, and Molecular Biology', published 1995 under ISBN 9780792329855 and ISBN 0792329856.
