Book Description

Biological Rhythms and Photoperiodism in Plants brings together disparate subject areas into one accessible text of interest to all plant biologists. In this comprehensive volume, leading international researchers review our current understanding of circadian rhythms from a broad perspective. The book begins with a description of well known rhythmic processes such as gene expression, stomatal guard cell opening, and the movement of petals and leaves. Photoperiodic responses such as dormancy, bulbing, tuberization and flowering are then discussed in terms of their rhythmic behaviour. The latest data from current studies with mutant and transgenic plants is also included.


' This book is intended for graduate and advanced under-graduate students, and should provide useful information for courses in plant development and molecular biology.' - APP

' I hope that this book will not be restricted to researchers and people teaching in the field, but that also graduate students will find it useful and fascinating.' - Review Cuttings Medicine Biology Urban & Fischer

'This book provides excellent background information, especially the many diagrams explaining the phenomena described in the text. I would also like to mention the really helpful glossary at the end of the book.' - Journal of Plant Physiology

'The chapters are clear and concise, and the presentation is extremely well organised. This book is a must for students and researchers interested in circadian rhythms.' - The Quarterly Review of Biology
