About this book

The development of a plant's roots is of fundamental importance to the success of a plant, its growth and level of yield, particularly important in commercially exploited crop plants. A full understanding of this most important subject is core to the work of most plant and crop scientists. "Root Development" is an extremely exciting new title in Blackwell Publishing's "Annual Plant Reviews" series (series editor Professor Jeremy Roberts). The book consists of contributions from author groups based at many of the World's foremost laboratories working in the root development area. The book's editor Tom Beeckman, himself very well known and respected for his work in this area, has drawn together an exceptional set of core cutting edge reviews of the subject, providing a state of the art reference tool for all those researching in this area.
