"Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, 2nd edition is a beast, but it's a user-friendly one that should be welcomed into one's life to provide much-appreciated companionship to further one's plant biology studies." (AoB Blog, 1 November 2015)
Since its publication in 2000, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology of Plants has been hailed as a major contribution to the plant sciences literature, and critical acclaim was matched by global sales success. Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second edition is completely revised and extensively rewritten, including much new material and chapters that are re-organized for improved presentation.
This book is meticulously organized and richly illustrated, containing over 1,000 full-color illustrations and 500 photographs. It is divided into five parts covering: Compartments; Cell Reproduction; Energy Flow; Metabolic and Developmental Integration; and Plant Environment and Agriculture. A companion website includes PowerPoint slides of all the figures from the book, plus PDF files of all the tables from the book, for the user to download.
