    This is the 10th volume in a series which was initiated in 1977. Like previous volumes, it contains scientific peer reviewed reviews on topics dealing with orchids. These topics include 1) a history of orchid breeders in Singapore, 2) discussion of research on pollen effects on orchid flowers carried out a century ago by the German plant ...

  • Environmental Stress: Indication, Mitigation, and Eco-Conservation

    In the present scenario, stresses induced due to global environmental change have indeed become a focal point of researches and study programmes worldwide. Stress caused to plant life has an important consequence to both, vegetation as such and all other global cycles which sustain this 'living earth'. Unlike other already existing works ...

  • Floral Biology

    This volume highlights the new synthesis of pollination biology and plant mating systems which is rejuvenating the two-hundred-year-old discipline of floral biology. It provides a current examination of the evolution and functional significance of floral traits in animal-pollinated plants, combining ecological and genetic studies with ...

  • Plant Epigenetics

    The past fifteen years have witnessed major advances in epigenetics, one of the most popular and quickly evolving fields of modern science. In Plant Epigenetics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the most recent developments, examining in great detail the contribution of epigenetic regulation to cell function in plants. Chapters ...

  • Plant Surface Microbiology

    Most plants rely on the co-existence with microorganisms: both groups benefit from these symbioses. It has been shown that a large number of specific genes in plants and microorganisms are only activated during these interactions. Of course, various microbes also act as pathogens. Interactions between plants and microorganisms are often located on ...

  • Recent Advances in Plant Biotechnology

    The primary purpose of this book is to tell the reader what plant biotechnology is all about – progressing from its roots in the basic sciences to its current applications in the biological and agricultural sciences, industry, and medicine. These widespread applications signal the fact that plant biotechnology is increasingly gaining in ...

  • Plant-microbe Interactions 1

    This new series will cover all aspects of research on plant-microbe interactions, including beneficial plant symbioses such as symbiotic nitrogen fixation, plant pathology, plant genetics, molecular biology, agronomy, ecology, and phytochemistry. Over the past several years there has been a tremendous increase in our knowledge of ...

  • Plant Physiological Ecology

    The growth, reproduction and geographical distribution of plants are profoundly influenced by their physiological ecology: the interaction with the surrounding physical, chemical, and biological environments. This renowned textbook is notable in emphasizing that the mechanisms underlying plant physiological ecology can be found at the levels of ...

  • Gradients in a Tropical Mountain Ecosystem of Ecuador

    A tropical mountain ecosystem in one of the 'hottest' biodiversity hotspots worldwide was investigated by some 30 research teams of numerous disciplines in the natural and social sciences. Ecosystem analysis followed two gradients: an altitudinal gradient and a gradient of land-use intensity and ecosystem regeneration, respectively.This volume ...

  • Biology of Adventitious Root Formation

    Special Lecture: The Origin, Diversity, and Biology of Shoot-Borne Roots; P.W. Barlow. The Commercial Importance of Adventitious Rooting: Commercial Application of Adventitious Rooting to Forestry; G.A. Ritchie. Infrastructure for Research: Model Systems for Studying Adventitious Root Formation; S.G. Ernst. Setting the Stage for Rooting: ...

  • Cell Division Control in Plants

    The molecular mechanisms controlling cell cycle progression are highly conserved in eukaryotes. In addition to the basic protein machinery involved in cell cycle regulation, higher plants have also evolved unique molecular mechanisms that allow integration of environmental, physiological, and developmental signals into networks to control proper ...

  • Genetics and Genomics of Populus

    Trees are truly amazing! Woody species underpin vital terrestrial ecosystems, present a complex array of evolutionary novelties, and provide essential benefits and commodities. Trees play a key role in the major biogeochemical cycles, including water, oxygen, and nitrogen. Notably, forests are second only to oceans in the biological sequestration ...
