This revolutionary book examines the biochemistry of endogenous ethylene biosynthesis and its role in the physiology of higher plants. Never before has such comprehensive attention been given to soil microbiota and their potential exogenous source of ethylene. This book provides chapters examining ethylene as a hormone, its role in plant physiology, sources and factors affecting microbial production of ethylene, and biochemistry of ethylene production by microorganisms. It also considers ethylene production in soil, the role of ethylene in symbiosis and pathogenesis, and its commercial application in agriculture. This book is extremely valuable in that it covers all aspects of ethylene sources, in-depth biochemistry and applications.
