Cell and Molecular Biology of Wood Formation
- This format is currently out of stock.
The application of modern molecular biology techniques is providing new insight into wood formation and the seasonal nature of secondary growth in perennial woody plant species. Extensively illustrated, this new book provides a comprehensive and critical overview of current understanding about the biology of wood formation, with a focus on the development, regulation and biochemistry of cambial growth supplemented by additional considerations of the fundamental factors determining forest productivity, wood quality and heartwood formation.
'This book is an essential reference for all those involved in research on cambial growth and xylogenesis.' - Bois et Forets
