Ethylene in Plant Biology, Second Edition provides a definitive survey of what is currently known about this structurally simplest of all plant growth regulators. This volume contains all new material plus a bibliographic guide to the complete literature of this field. Progress in molecular biology and biotechnology as well as biochemistry, plant physiology, development, regulation, and environmental aspects is covered in nine chapters co-authored by three eminent authorities in plant ethylene research. This volume is the modern text reference for all researchers and students of ethylene in plant and agricultural science. The key features include: completely updated; concise, readable style for students and professional; an extensive bibliographic guide to the original literature; well illustrated with diagrams and photographs; and, thorough coverage of: ethylene and ethephon roles and effects, stress ethylene, biosynthesis of ethylene, molecular biology of ethylene, action of ethylene, and agricultural uses of ethylene.
