Photosynthetica
...an excellent source of recent information on the field....a useful source of relevant references on the subjects....comprehensive.
Booknews
A comprehensive reference that covers plant physiological states and processes from seed germination to senescence and abcission under both normal and stress conditions, examining all important aspects of the field, including plant genetics and crop production. The 46 chapters are grouped into eight sections: plants, crops, and growth environment; physiology of plant/crop growth and developmental stages; plant growth regulators--the natural hormones (growth promoters and inhibitors); physiological responses of plants and crops under stressful (salt, drought, and other environmental stress) conditions; physiology of lower-plant genetics and development; physiology of higher-plant/crop genetics and development; whole plant vs. reductive research on physiological genetics of crop physiology; and physiological aspects of sustainable plant/crop production.
