About this book

Provides a comprehensive coverage of growth control in woody plants including discussions on the growth controlling factors in both reproductive structures (flowers, fruit, seeds, pollen etc) and vegetative organs (stems, branches, leaves, and roots). Other major topics covered include seed germination, seedling growth, physiological and environmental regulation of growth, cultural practices, and biotechnology.

The book will be useful for students and researchers already familiar with plant physiology because it provides an efficient means of accessing the primary literature in an impressive array of topics. The authors are to be commended for a no-nonsense compilation of the vast literature on woody plant physiology. --THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY "...this book gives a broad and valuable overview for students on woody plants and many fields of applied and basic plant science. It can also be used as a reference book for researchers." --JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
