Overview

Fruit development and seed dispersal are major topics within plant and crop sciences teaching and research, with major new developments in our understanding being reported regularly.

Fruit Development and Seed Dispersal takes an approach beginning with carpel evolution, development of the Arabidopsis gynecium, and ovule development, further topics reviewed include fertilisation and fruit initiation, Arabidopsis fruit development, and long distance seed dispersal. This latest volume in Wiley-Blackwell's internationally-renowned Annual Plant Reviews then concludes with cutting edge reviews of seed dispersal and domestication, tomato fruit ripening and parthenocarpy in crops.

Drawing together some of the world's leading experts in these areas, the Editor of this volume, Lars Østergaard, has provided a landmark publication that is essential reading for plant and crop scientists, developmental biologists, ecologists and evolutionary biologists. All libraries in universities where plant science, agriculture, biological and molecular sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important volume on their shelves.
