Description

Plant  hormones  playa  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 these  parts  to produce the form  that  we  recognize  as  a plant. In addition, they  playa  controlling role in the processes of reproduction.  This  book is a description of  these natural chemicals: how they are synthesized and metabolized;  how  they work; how  we  measure them; and a description of some of the roles they play in regulating plant growth  and  development. This is not a conference proceedings  but  a selected collection of newly  written,  integrated, illustrated reviews describing our knowledge of plant hormones and the experimental work which is the foundation of this knowledge.
