About this book

Plant Biochemistry takes a systematic approach and gives a broad overview of plant biochemistry. Biochemistry is placed within the context of the life of the growing plant - from a cellular level to, where applicable, an ecological and environmental level -, using a host of examples. This approach, combined with a careful balance of textual description, explanation and illustration, provides an uncomplicated scientific view of an otherwise complex subject.
