Annual Plant Reviews, Volume 6

Reproduction is the final stage in the life cycle of a plant. This volume presents an overview of plant reproduction at research and professional level, from the induction of flowering to the setting of seeds. Authors address all the major contemporary issues in plant reproduction and the chapters are grouped into four sections along a chronological theme: physiological and molecular control of the floral transition, floral organ development, pollination, embryogenesis and senescence.
