About this book

Research into membrane transport has advanced rapidly in recent years, following the availability of new biophysical techniques, the integration of structural and molecular approaches, and developments in molecular genomics. With an expanding population, agricultural production is pushed increasingly into marginal areas, promoting interest in the genetic engineering of crop species to cope with these conditions.

This volume provides an overview of our current understanding of plant membrane transport in the light of recent developments.
