Plant Hormones - Biosynthesis, Signal Transduction, Action!
Edited by Peter J. Davies
This book, explains how plant hormones play a crucial role in controlling the way in which plants grow and develop.
While metabolism provides the power and building blocks for plant life, it is the hormones that regulate the speed of
growth of the individual parts and integrate them to produce the form that we recognize as a plant.

This book is a description of these natural chemicals and illustrates:
how they are synthesized and metabolized
This third edition of the highly acclaimed text/monograph was last published in 1995 under the title
"Plant Hormones: Physiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology". Two-thirds of the thirty one chapters,
written by a group of fifty two international experts, are totally new, and all other chapters have been completely
rewritten to include the latest information on plant hormones, particularly with reference to such new topics as
signal transduction, brassinosteroids, responses to disease, and expansins. The book is not a conference proceedings
but a selected collection of newly written, carefully integrated and illustrated reviews describing our knowledge of
plant hormones and the experimental work that is the foundation of this information.
how they act at both the organismal and molecular levels
how they may be measured
the roles they play in regulating plant growth and development, and
the prospects for the genetic engineering of hormone levels or responses in crop plants.
Written for advanced students and professions in the plant sciences, botanists, biochemists and molecular
biologists and those in the horticultural, agricultural and forestry sciences.
