Ethylene is a simple gaseous plant hormone produced by higher plants, bacteria and fungi. Thanks to new tools that have become available in biochemistry and molecular genetics, parts of the ethylene biosynthesis, perception and signal transduction reactions have been elucidated. This knowledge has been applied to enhance the quality of a number of agronomically important crops. In Biology and Biotechnology of the Plant Hormone Ethylene, leading figures in the field provide surveys of the current state of ethylene biosynthesis and action, perception and signal transduction pathways, senescence, biotechnological control, and the involvement of ethylene in pathogenesis and stress. Audience: Indispensable to all academic, industrial and agricultural researchers as well as undergraduates and graduates in plant biology, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology and food science.

`This book can be recommended for researchers and students interested in plant biology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology.' Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, 20:3 (1998) `All these matters are discussed in this well-presented volume. It is a mine of current information on the central role of ethylene in plant life. But the editors'Prologos says it all: `this will be of major interest to all academic, industrial and agricultural researchers...' Annals of Botany 81:673-685 (1998)
