  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    These books provide an update to progress on somatic embryogenesis in woody plants including both angiosperm and gymnosperm trees. In the past, most of the information on this subject was scattered in proceedings volumes, journals, biotechnology books, etc. It has been difficult for the researchers and students to obtain comprehensive ...

  • Ecophysiology of High Salinity Tolerant Plants

    The halophytes are highly specialized plants, which have greater tolerance to salt. They can germinate, grow and reproduce successfully in saline areas which would cause the death of regular plants. Most halophytic species are found in salt marsh systems along seashores or around landlocked inland lakes and flat plains with high evaporation. The ...

  • Amazing Numbers in Biology

    This book will become ragged with use....A labour of love and listing. Amazing Numbers is better than googling, because it has a sensible index and you don't have to wade through a whole load of irrelevance to get what you want. It's also logically divided into such sections as 'Size', 'Blood' and 'Germination', and, just in case you ever want to ...

  • Survival Strategies of Annual Desert Plants

    Annual desert plant species of unrelated taxa in the Negev Desert of Israel have developed complementary sets of adaptations and survival strategies as ecological equivalents with physiological, morphological and anatomical resemblances, in the various stages of their life cycles. After 40 years of research in hot deserts Yitzchak Gutterman ...

  • Protocol for Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    Earlier, we edited a well received series on 'Somatic embryogenesis in woody trees', volumes 1 to 6. These volumes provided readers detailed extensive reviews on somatic embryogenesis of important angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species; an excellent source of information for newcomers or those already engaged in research. However, these book ...

  • Plant Developmental Biology - Biotechnological Perspectives

    Understanding the mechanisms whereby plant development is regulated is crucial for crop improvement using genetic engineering. This work, comprising two volumes, reviews recent advances in plant developmental biology and explores the possibility of their practical applications from biotechnological perspectives.Volume 1 deals with the plant model ...

  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    The rapid progress made on somatic embryogenesis and its prospects for potential applications in improving woody plants prompted us to edit this book initially in three volumes, and now to add two more volumes. The editors were all convinced that such a treatise was needed and would be extremely useful to researchers and students. This Volume ...

  • Seeds: Physiology of Development and Germination

    In response to enormous recent advances, particularly in molecular biology, the authors have revised their warmly received work. This new edition includes updates on seed development, gene expression, dormancy, and other subjects. It will serve as the field's standard textbook and reference source for many years to come. ...

  • Arbuscular Mycorrhizas: Physiology and Function

    This book provides a structured compilation of reviews of what is known about arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis. Topics were selected to cover major steps in the life cycle of AM fungi (germination, signaling/recognition prior to colonization, and host regulation of colonization). Aspects of the physiological interaction within the root for ...

  • Dispersal Biology of Desert Plants

    Dispersal processes have important effects on plant distribution and abundance. Although adaptations to long range dispersal (telechory) are by no means rare in desert plants, many desert plant species do not possess any features to promote dispersal (atelechory), while others have structures that hamper dispersal (antitelechory). The high ...

  • Genetic Improvement of Seed Quality

    Dramatic examples of genetic enhancement of seed quality exist relative to hardness, germination, protein quality and quantity, oil, and many other traits. Maintenance of seed quality is also paramount in the preservation of biodiversity. Readers first learn fundamentals of preserving and enhancing good agronomic seed quality as well as specific ...

  • Plant Growth Substances

    In a convenient, single-source reference, this book examines plant growth substances and their relationship to a wide range of physiological processes, ranging from seed germination through the death of the plant. If offers a clear illustration of the pragmatic uses of plant substances in agriculture and demonstrates how basic laboratory ...

  • Handbook of Plant Ecophysiology Techniques

    This book is intended for people interested in plant ecophysiology research or related sciences. It will also be useful for scientists working in forestry or agronomy. Twenty-seven chapters cover a wide variety of techniques, from electron microscopy applied to seed germination, flow cytometry applied to different measures, cell cycle ...
