First comprehensive monograph on all emerging topics in plant signaling

Back cover:

This book addresses diverse aspects of signaling at all levels of plant organization, starting from single molecules; through vesicle recycling and organelles, dynamic actin cytoskeletons, and plant organs bending in response to sensory stimuli induced by abiotic cues such as gravity and light; up to the whole organism as related to its circadian clock or pathogen defense. Emphasis is placed on the integrative aspects of signaling, which foster our understanding of sensory and communicative plants in all their complexity.

From the reviews: “This book provides detailed coverage of a wide range of aspects of signalling and emphasizes the critical importance of such signalling to plants, which as sessile organisms are at the mercy of their biotic and abiotic environment. … The book provides a valuable perspective to the dynamic nature of plants. … The illustrations are of high quality … . It will serve as an excellent resource for advanced graduate students and post-graduates who wish to obtain a detailed insight into plant cell signalling.” (Zoe A. Wilson, Annals of Botany, Vol. 105 (5), May, 2010)
