"Advances in Botanical Research" is a multi-volume publication that brings together reviews by recognized experts on subjects of importance to those involved in botanical research. For more than 30 years, "Advances in Botanical Research" has earned a reputation for excellence in the field. For those working on plant pathology, "Advances in Plant Pathology" has also carved a niche in the plant sciences during its decade of publication. Academic Press has merged "Advances in Plant Pathology" into "Advances in Botanical Research". The plant science community will find that the merger of these two serials should provide one comprehensive resource for the field. To ensure complete coverage, John Andrews and Inez Tommerup, the editors of "Advances in Plant Pathology", have joined the editorial board of the new series, which will include equal coverage of plant pathology and botany in both thematic and mixed volumes. The first few volumes of the new series will be slanted toward botany or plant pathology; however, future eclectic volumes will be fully integrated.
The resulting synergy of these two serials greatly benefits the plant science community by providing a more comprehensive resource under one roof. The joint aim is to continue to include the very best articles, thereby maintaining the status of a high impact factor review series. The plant vacuole is a unique organelle that allows plant cells to grow to large sizes. This book provides an overview of the current state of the knowledge of the plant vacuole, including its many functions in the cell. The book includes the benefits of having a vacuole, the types of solute that are found in vacuoles, and how their concentrations are regulated. Chapters focus on vacuole transport systems, vacuole formation and the role of the vacuole in plant senescence and plant defence. This volume, with contributions from experts in the field, should be useful to plant researchers from a variety of fields.
