Description of Plant Growth and Development

The Plant Growth and Development book is written for third and fourth-year undergraduates and beginning graduate students who have had basic botany and some introduction to biochemistry and molecular biology. It is designed to complement texts in plant physiology. Like most other textbooks, it originated because there was no single text that covered the burgeoning field of hormonal and environmental regulation of plant growth that was reasonably up to date. 

The last text on Growth and Differentiation in Plants subject authored by P. F. Wareing and I. D. J. Phillips was published in 1981. Since then, spurred on by the application of molecular and genetic techniques, research in plant growth and development, has revolutionized our thinking in plant biology.

This is not to say that there are no excellent books around. Several multiauthored books are available. Nevertheless, there is no text that is specifically written for senior undergraduates that cover the field of hormonal and environmental regulation of plant growth.
