Handbook of Plant Growth - pH as the Master Variable

Edited by Zdenko Rengel 
Marcel Dekker  2002  



Hard Cover  472 pp  ISBN 9780824707613      £145.00
This reference explores the molecular, biochemical, functional, structural, and developmental mechanisms of pH in plant growth - examining the role of pH in plant symplasm, plant apoplasm, the rhizosphere, the ecosystem, and in plant interaction with biotic and abiotic environments.

The Handbook of Plant Growth discusses the:

  • dynamics of H+ fluxes across membranes such as the plasma membrane, tonoplast, mitochondria, and chloroplast thylakoid
  • interdependence of pH dynamics and soil abiotic systems
  • effect of pH fluxes on soil-plant-microbe interactions
  • physiological properties of vacuolar proton pumps
  • maintenance and regulation of stable cytoplasmic pH
  • current methods for the imaging of intracellular Ph

Analyzing the complexities of plant life from biological processes to cell organelles and molecules, the Handbook of Plant Growth is an excellent and authoritative reference plant, crop, soil, and environmental scientists; plant and crop physiologists; botanists; agronomists; agriculturists; horticulturists; biochemists; foresters; and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
