Reviews of the First Edition
Anybody interested in plant hormones and the chemical control of plant growth and development will find this a gold mine of information and references."
"The reviewer strongly recommends the book to students and research workers in post-harvest physiology of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The fact that the author has included descriptions of the role of ethylene in growth, development, and flowering of plants makes this book essential reading for all horticulturists, physiologists, and biologists."
Ethylene in Plant Biology, Second Edition provides a definitive survey of what is currently known about the structurally simplest of all plant growth regulators. This volume contains all new material plus a bibliographic guide to the complete literature of this field. Progress in molecular biology and biotechnology as well as biochemistry, plant physiology, development, regulation, and environmental aspects is covered in nine chapters coauthored by three eminent authorities in plant ethylene research. This volume is the modern text reference for all researchers and students of ethylene in plant and agricultural science.
