This 2005 treatise, aimed at researchers in plant developmental biology, discusses how each cell has the ability to discriminate between different chemical signals, determining which it will respond to and which it will ignore. These chemical signals shape the differentiation of that cell and the plant as a whole.

Contents

Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Hormones and signals; 3. Cell-to-cell signalling - long distance and short distance; 4. Population diversity of cell types and target identification in higher plants; 5. Flexibility of cell types and the target cell status; 6. Terminally committed cell types and the target status; 7. The mechanisms of target cell perception and response to specific signals; 8. Hormone action and the relief of repression; 9. The phenomenon of hormonal crosstalk; References.

Review

"The book displays very deep knowledge of a subject that has dodged the scientific community for many years. This is a timely book that brings in a new way to look at old ideas. I highly recommend this text to researchers in fields of plant developmental physiology."
