Description

This volume provides an overview of the key advances in our understanding of plant cell walls over the last decade. It incorporates the advances of molecular biology and the identification of a rapidly growing number of genes and the proteins responsible for plant wall synthesis, restructuring, and degradation. The volume bridges the gap between the biochemistry-oriented cell wall literature and the new technology-driven approaches.

Reviews

"A valuable introduction…an extremely valuable addition to the literature..[T]his is a well-referenced, well-indexed and well-produced book, which deserved to be very widely used."
