Part 1 deals with nitric oxide and peroxynitrite biochemistry and regulative mechanisms as presently known in the Plant Kingdom whilst part 2 deals with environmental aspects of nitric oxide as an atmospheric pollutant and discusses endogenous means which plants at times employ to cope with this particular type of stress.

Media reviews
'The book can be recommended to advanced students, to lecturers and scientists in plant biology and agriculture and also to all those dealing with environmental effects.' Journal of Plant Physiology, 157 (2000) '...has some real strenghts. It represents an excellent introduction to the subject and provides many ideas and information.' Plant Science, 161 (2001) 'In summary, the book is recommended to whoever wishes to start studying the various roles of NO in plant development and physiology, as it covers the possible involvement of NO in many diverse aspects of plant life.' Israel Journal of Plant Sciences, 49 (2001)
