About this book

Plant Science, like the biological sciences in general, has undergone seismic shifts in the last thirty or so years. Of course science is always changing and metamorphosing, but these shifts have meant that modern plant science has moved away from its previous more agricultural and botanical context, to become a core biological discipline in its own right. However the sheer amount of information that is accumulating about plant science, and the difficulty of grasping it all, understanding it and evaluating it intelligently, has never been harder for the new generation of plant scientists or, for that matter, established scientists. And that is precisely why this Handbook of Plant Science has been put together.

There were no other plant science books that I found published in recent years that covered this topic in as much breadth and depth as the Handbook of Plant Science. I recommend the Handbook of Plant Science as important reference for researchers and scientists who are interested in the intricate aspects of plant anatomy, physiology, genetics, evolution, and more.
