About this book

Covers all major aspects of the cell cycle including cyclins, CDK inhibitors and phosphorylation, cell cycle control and activation, developments of trichomes, fruits, and the endosperm. Final chapters deal with the hormonal control of cell division, and environmental stress and cell cycle exit.

'Professor Dirk Inze, well known and respected internationally, has brought together an impressive team of contributing authors, providing an excellent new volume in Blackwell Publishing's Annual Plant Reviews Series. The book is an essential purchase for research teams working in the areas of plant sciences and molecular, cell and developmental biology. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this essential and timely volume.'
