About this book

The advent of the postgenome era has brought a remarkable evolution in modern plant embryology. In Plant Embryogenesis, the authors focus on the common developmental process and compile novel tools and methods designed specifically for studying plant embryogenesis. In each chapter, detailed outlines of model embryonic systems are provided, as well as cutting-edge cellular, genetic and molecular mechanisms. This important book gives insight into the methods used in studying the transformation of phylogenetically-conserved embryonic patterns into flora's astounding diversity of growth forms today. Invaluable to those new to the field and inspiring to full-fledged plant embryologists, Plant Embryogenesis provides today's most comprehensive platform to the understanding of plant embryo development.

Contents

Media reviews

From the reviews: "I wish to recommend ! 'Plant Embryogenesis' edited by M.F. Suarez and P.V. Bozhkov. ! we can whole-heartedly express our thanks to all authors -- leading experts in the field of plant embryology for very useful book. ! The authors aim this book primarily at researchers who are relatively new to the field of plant embryology. ! this volume will be very useful text in all laboratories dealing with plant development and embryology. It can inspire students as well as full-fledged plant embryologists." (Z. Vondrakova, Biologia Plantarum, Vol. 52 (2), 2008)
