About this book

Provides an integrated view of the molecular structure and function of the plant cell wall, its formation and roles in a variety of plant processes.

Review of the first edition: In this clearly written and well illustrated book, Brett and Waldron show how research over the past 20 years has revolutionized our view of the plant cell wall ... the authors' [have an] admirably eclectic approach, which touches on areas as diverse as pollen dating, dry rot and mechanical engineering ... Brett and Waldron have provided a readily accessible introduction to all these topics for any plant scientist - Times Higher Education Supplement; ...a reference for the molecular biologist catching up on the structural fundamentals of the cell walls of flowering plants - Trends in plant science


The role of the cell wall in the life of the plant. The molecular components of the wall. Cell wall architecture and the skeletal functions of the wall. Cell-wall formation. The cell wall and control of cell growth. The cell wall and intracellular transport. The cell wall and interactions with other organisms. The cell wall and reproduction. Cell-wall degradation and biotechnological applications. Cell walls in diet and health. Outstanding problems for future research.
