"Plant Growth and Development: A Molecular Approach" teaches plant development through a comprehensive cellular and biochemical treatment for the advanced undergraduate student. Suitable for courses in plant developmental biology and related subjects, this textbook is the product of the author's many years of teaching experience. Innovative in conception, well illustrated with two-colour diagrams, and enhanced bv the author's expertise in developmental, molecular, and cell biology, this book aims to cover new ground in this field. The book presents plant development from a molecular and cellular perspective; illustrates concepts with two-colour diagrams throughout; offers key study questions and guides to further reading within each chapter; gives an up-to-date and thorough treatment of this increasingly important subject area; and is derived from the author's many years of teaching plant developmental biology.
