"...nearly any plant scientist will find this a useful reference work to have on their bookshelf." --Daniel Taub, PLANT SCIENCE BULLETIN "The presentation of this new edition has been improved... It is richly illustrated. A 180-page reference section contributes to the quality of the book. The book is a fantastic source of information for instructors in plant physiology. The book may be the scientific legacy of the recently declared coeditor of this journal." --Michel Couderchet, JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY "...I should stress that the author has a very clear, easy to follow and instructive style of presentation." --ACTA PHYSIOLOGIAE PLANTARUM "...thoroughly recommended... a welcome addition to any library or laboratory shelf and should remain relevant for many years." --Marc F. Allison, IACR-Brooms Barn, PLANT GROWTH REGULATION
