Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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
