About this book

From the differentiation of tracheary elements in vascular plants to the more specialized cell death model of the aleurone in cereals, this volume will bring the reader up-to-date with the characterization of different plant model systems that are currently being studied.

'... the production standard is high and, in particular, the quality of the figures is good. ... this is a volume that should be available to anyone with a professional interest in developmental plant physiology. If you do not have access to the original issue of Plant Molecular Biology then persuade your library to buy this book ...' J.A. Bryant in Annals of Botany, 90 (2002) 'Programmed Cell Death in Higher Plants is a very valuable reference work and update on developments, both for those that are already working in this domain and for those desiring to do so. I would recommend this book highly for researchers in developmental biology of plants as well as in plant pathology.' Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture, 70 (2002)
