Overview

The recognition of cell death as an active process has changed the way in which biologists view living things. Geneticists re-evaluate long known mutants, research strategies are redesigned, and new model systems are sought.

This volume reviews our new understanding of programmed cell death as it applies to plants. The book draws comparisons with programmed cell death in animals and unicellular organisms.

The book is directed at researchers and professionals in plant cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, developmental biology and genetics.
