About this book

The molecular aspects of recognition and transduction of different kinds of signals is a research area that is attracting world-wide interest. Major advances have been made in animal systems, but recently plants have become attractive to research because of their role in biotechnology. The type of signals peculiar to the plant world as well as the similarity of currently known plant transduction pathways to their animal counterparts is prompting more studies in this area of cell biology. This text provides a survey of all aspects of the recognition and transduction of plant signals of both chemical and physical origin such as hormones, light, toxins and elicitors. The various authors, drawn from areas of plant molecular biology and physiology, present different approaches to studying the recognition and transduction of different signals which specifically trigger molecular processes in plants. This book should interest researchers, teachers, and advanced students in plant biology, biochemistry and agriculture, as well as related animal systems.
