Plant Reproduction presents an overview of plant reproduction at the research and professional level, covering physiological and molecular control of the floral transition, floral organ development, embryogenesis, pollination, and senescence. The volume is directed at plant geneticists, molecular biologists, developmental biologists and physiologists.
The Control of Flowering: Do Genetics and Physiological Approaches Converge? The Genetic Control of Flowering Time. The Genetic and Molecular Control of Ovule Development. The Developmental Biology of Pollen. Plant Embryogenesis - The Cellular Design of a Plant. Endosperm Development. The Central Role of the Ovule in Apomixis and Parthenocarpy. Self-Incompatibility in Flowering Plants: The Ribonuclease-based Systems. Pollination Signals and Flower Senescence. Index.
