In recent years, the study of the plant cell cycle has become of major interest, not only to scientists working on cell division sensu strictu , but also to scientists dealing with plant hormones, development and environmental effects on growth. The book The Plant Cell Cycle is a very timely contribution to this exploding field.
Outstanding contributors reviewed, not only knowledge on the most important classes of cell cycle regulators, but also summarized the various processes in which cell cycle control plays a pivotal role.
The central role of the cell cycle makes this book an absolute must for plant molecular biologists.

Review quote

`In conclusion, the "Plant Cell Cycle" gives a solid and exhaustive overview of the plant cell cycle and should also interest a large range of readers outside of the very specialised plant cell cycle field.'
Plant Science, 160 (2001)
`Dirk Inze performed a Herculean task in assembling these papers and ensuring a very high level of scientific excellence throughout. It is undoubtedly a must for plant cell cycle research labs and should be acquired by libraries. It is perfect for graduate students setting off on plant cell cycle research, and if they talk nicely to close relatives it may find its way into their festive stocking providing it is a big one.'
Annals of Botany Company, (2001)
