Media reviews

From the reviews of the third edition: "This book is a carefully selected collection of newly written, well integrated and illustrated reviews. It deals with our current knowledge of plant hormones and their role in plant growth and development. ! It covers, in very succinct and easy to read chapters, the historical background, the chemical nature, occurrence and functions of the various classes of hormones. ! It is a must for postgraduates. Certainly all university libraries should carry a copy or two as it can be used by all disciplines ! ." (Johannes van Staden, South African Journal of Botany, Vol. 72, 2006)
