Plant Science, like the biological sciences in general, has undergone seismic shifts in the last thirty or so years. Of course science is always changing and metamorphosing, but these shifts have meant that modern plant science has moved away from its previous more agricultural and botanical context, to become a core biological discipline in its own right. However the sheer amount of information that is accumulating about plant science, and the difficulty of grasping it all, understanding it and evaluating it intelligently, has never been harder for the new generation of plant scientists or, for that matter, established scientists. And that is precisely why this Handbook of Plant Science has been put together. * Discover modern, molecular plant sciences as they link traditional disciplines!* Derived from the acclaimed Encyclopedia of Life Sciences!* Thorough reference of up-to-the minute, reliable, self-contained, peer-reviewed articles - cross-referenced throughout!* Contains 255 articles and 48 full-colour pages, written by top scientists in each field!
The Handbook of Plant Science is an authoritative source of up-to-date, practical information for all teachers, students and researchers working in the field of plant science, botany, plant biotechnology, agriculture and horticulture.
