About this book

Updated edition which reflects the enormous strides made in the field in the last ten years, particularly in areas amenable to study using the techniques and approaches of molecular biology and mutant technology. This is especially apparent with respect to seed development, effects of abscisic acid and gibberellin on gene expression and certain aspects of dormancy.
