The establishment of polarity is a fundamental feature in eukaryotic development. Edited by a prominenet researcher in the field, Polarity in Plants presents an overview of the recent advances in molecular biology that provide insight into how plants use environmental signals to orient themselves and to establish their direction of growth.
A timely reference, Polarity in Plants provides an account of current research into the mechanisms by which polarity is generated at the level of the cell, organ and organism in plants, drawing especially on recent work with model organisms. The emphasis is on the use of the techniques of molecular genetics to dissect molecular mechanisms. This is the first volume to bring together the diverse aspects of polarity in plant development.
This is a valuable guide for researchers and practitioners working in cell, molecular, and developmental biology, biochemistry, and plant physiology.
