Plant Microtubules - Development and Flexibility
Edited by Peter Nick
Plant microtubules are key elements of cell growth, division and morphogenesis. In addition to their
role in plant development and architecture, they have emerged as regulatory elements of signalling and important
targets of evolution.

Since the publication of the first edition of Plant Microtubules in 2000, our understanding of microtubules and their
manifold functions have advanced substantially. Consisting of the following three parts, this book highlights the
morphogenetic potential of plant microtubules from three general viewpoints:
- Microtubules and Morphogenesis: control of cell axis during division and expansion, cross-talk
with actin filaments, mechanical properties of the cell wall.
- Microtubules and Environment: the role of microtubules during the sensing or response of environmental factors
such as pathogens or abiotic stresses.
- Microtubules and Evolution: complexity and specialization of plant microtubules in the context of plant evolution.
For those working in academia and applied science, the state of the art of a fascinating field of cell biology is given;
for graduate and advanced students the most recent advances are positioned into a clear conceptual context.
