Product Description

Perhaps the most obvious innovation of this Fourth Edition of Plant Physiology is the chapter on brassinosteroids. A sufficient body of scientific work has now accumulated on vaious aspects of brassinosteroid biosynthesis, physiology, and signal transduction to justify incorporation into a chapter of its own. Other changes include a complete rewrite of Chapter 16, Growth and Development, which reflects the rapidly evolving progress in this field. Updated material incorporated into other chapters includes recent, important progress in the light reactions and biochemistry of photosynthesis, respiration, ion transport, and water relations. In the hormone chapters, new information on transport mechanisms, signaling pathways, and regulatory networks has been added. One of the most exciting new findings presented in the Fourth Edition is the tentative identification of the long sought-after photoperiodic floral stimulus as a specific macromolecule.
