The topic of fruit and seed production is given a broad and comprehensive treatment, with chapters covering the onset of flowering through to the development and growth of fruits and seeds, and finally to ecological and evolutionary aspects of fruiting.

"To challenge the reader to even try to understand the complexity of reproductive development of plants is a formidable task. Yet, the 11 chapters of this book do so admirably by presenting a palatable and potent distillate of the essentials of nature and control of plant reproduction." T. T. Kozlowski, BioScience "...quite likely that this book may fill a niche in a course in plant reproductive biology, particularly since it brings together quite a bit of information on the later stages of plant reproduction." Judith Thomas, Plant Science Bulletin
