This timely reference integrates the latest advances in the diverse and rapidly expanding field of seed science - from ecological and demographic aspects of seed production, dispersal, and germination to the molecular biology of seed development.
Offering a broad, multidisciplinary approach that covers both theoretical and applied knowledge, Seed Development and Germination examines the regulation of synthesis and the accumulation of seed storage compounds as well as their utilization during germination ... mechanisms of desiccation tolerance and maintenance of seed viability ... genetic, hormonal, and environmental issues in seed dormancy ... water relations in germination and osmotic priming ... the germination of weeds and parasitic plants plus seed-bank germination modeling ... the genetic engineering of seeds to improve nutritional quality ... the biotechnology of artificial seed production ... and more.
Generously illustrated and containing some 4000 bibliographic citations, Seed Development and Germination is an outstanding resource for plant physiologists, molecular biologists, biochemists, biotechnologists, and geneticists; horticulturists; agronomists; botanists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
