About this book

This book provides a reference source for everyone in the plant sciences, especially in plant physiology.| The chapters give a thorough discussion of the International System of Unit, plant names, statistics, plant biophysics, plant biochemistry and molecular biology, and plant growth and development.

I believe the book will be of great importance and should find a place on many a plant scientists' desk--and maybe even some other broadminded souls. --Mary Bisson, Department of Biological Sciences, SUNY at Buffalo
"Very useful and up-to-date."--HortScience
"Few are as qualified to write a book of this nature as is Frank Salisbury."--Science Books & Films
