An introduction to the experimental approach to the development of the whole plant. The book deals with lower vascular plants (i.e. ferns) and seed plants, beginning with the embryo and continuing through the phase of secondary growth (the vascular cambium). Rapid advances in molecular biology in recent years have made a significant contribution to the understanding of development and whenever possible these exciting findings have been drawn into the interpretation provided in this new edition.

Industry Reviews

"The text is well-organized and illustrated...should be useful to undergraduate and graduate students seeking to learn more about how healthy plants develop. It will also be valuable as a reference for plant pathologists who have research interests in the development of plants and to those who wish to review plant development..." Phytopathology News
