Overview

This book provides a timely review of progress in the area of primary plant metabolism, and in particular highlights the extent to which molecular techniques now influence the investigation and understanding of plant metabolism. The emphasis of the book is centred on processes related to the dominant pathways of carbohydrate production and utilisation, and is arranged to reflect the current focus of researchers on three broadly overlapping areas of investigation.

  • The molecular architecture of selected enzymes of primary metabolism;
  • The integration of metabolism between organelles, cells, tissues and organs;
  • The manipulation of major pathways of carbohydrate metabolism.

Each of the contributors is an internationally recognised researcher who presents a cogent summary of recent advances in the field. The volume will be of particular value to undergraduates, graduates and advanced researchers in plant biology, biotechnology and biochemistry, as well as researchers in related areas of plant physiology, crop production and horticulture who need to keep abreast of current developments in the understanding of the fundamental aspects of plant carbohydrate metabolism.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Papers from a January 1997 conference held at St. Hugh's College, Oxford, review progress in the area of primary plant metabolism, and highlight the extent to which molecular techniques now influence the investigation and understanding of plant metabolism. Emphasis is centered on processes related to dominant pathways of carbohydrate production and utilization, and material is arranged to reflect the current focus of researchers on three areas of investigation: molecular architecture of selected enzymes of primary metabolism; integration of metabolism between organelles, cells, tissues, and organs; and manipulation of major pathways of carbohydrate metabolism. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
'The book can be recommended to all scientists who are interested in a particular topic of plant metabolism...'
Journal of Plant Physiology, 157 (2000)
'The editors are to be congratulated on maintaining the high standards of previous Proceedings of the Phytochemical Society of Europe and producing a text which will be of value to students and researchers in plant biochemistry, biotechnology and physiology. I thoroughly recommend this book to relevant libraries within universities and research institutes where it will serve as a valuable reference source and stimulate more research into the fundamental aspects of plant carbohydrate metabolism.'
Plant Growth Regulation, 33(2001)
'To summarize, the information content of this book is high and timely. It will be useful, as the editors aim, as a state-of-the-art overview of the subject area. Both students and researchers will find it an essential source book.'
Biologia Plantarum, 43:4(2000)
