Shows how the study of fundamental plant physiological processes is being advanced through the science of genetics and illustrates how defined genetic materials in mutants and plant variants are being productively used to explore photosynthesis, stress tolerance, seed physiology, and flowering and reproductive morphology.
"Each case study has a nice readable account of the physiological and biochemical processes. . . .Will serve nicely as a ready reference source on specific mutants." --Plant Science Bulletin "
"Interesting and up-to-date. . . .Useful for advanced undergraduates, graduates, and faculty." --Choice "I was very impressed by the breadth of the book and like the selective way in which case studies are used to restrict its scope. It will not only be of interest to the plant physiologist, but will be particularly useful to the molecular biologist. In general I think this book is successful in meeting the authors objectives and I am sure it will take its rightful place in both main and departmental libraries." --Richard E. Kendrick, Wageningen Agricultural University
"Its value lies in the opportunity it gives readers to look over the fence into areas of research other than their main interest. . . .I was very impressed by the breadth of the book. . . .It will not only be of interest
