Methods in Plant Cell Biology provides in two volumes a comprehensive collection of analytical methods essential for researchers and students in the plant sciences. Individual chapters, written by experts in the field, provide an introductory overview, followed by a step-by-step technical description of the methods. This is accompanied by examples of typical results, illustrations, troubleshooting of potential pitfalls, sources of chemicals and equipment, and complete reference lists. Protocols are written to be easily comprehended by beginning research students, but these extensive volumes will also be a valuable addition to the libraries of expert researchers. Its key features are: written by experts, many of whom have developed the individual methods described; contains most, if not all, the methods needed for modern research in plant cell biology; up-to-date and comprehensive; cookbook style is simple to follow, troubleshooting details are provided, and illustrations are clear; full references; allows quick access to relevant journal articles and to the sources of chemicals required for the procedures; and, selective concentration on higher plant methods allows for particular emphasis on those problems specific to plants.
...It forms a valuable and readable addition to the literature on plant cell biology... --P.R. Shewry, IACR--Long Ashton Research Station, in PLANT GROWTH REGULATION "The text is supplemented with flowcharts of procedures and with instructive figures. This is why the volumes are successfully used by both experienced researchers and students... The traditionally well-edited text is supplemented with a detailed subject index." --Z. Sestak in PHOTOSYNTHETICA "The present volume competes will in terms of scope and the quality of the individual contribution, many of which contain lengthy introductions as well as detailed methods. In addition, the quality of production is well up to the usual Academic Press standards, including a small number of colour plates. Altogether it forms a valuable and readable addition to the literature on plant cell biology..." --P.R. Shewry in PLANT GROWTH REGULATION
