  • About the Book

    Book Summary

    Plant Biochemistry presents each topic from the cellular level to the ecological and environmental levels, placing it in the context of the whole plant.

    Biochemical pathways are represented as route maps, showing how one reaction follows another. These maps emphasize the dynamism and fl exibility of the plant in the face of environmental challenges. The unique and wide-ranging approach of this book emphasizes the importance of teaching and learning pathways within the framework of what the pathway does and why it is needed.

    Plant Biochemistry is invaluable to undergraduate students who wish to gain insight into the relevance of plant biochemistry to humans and animals. It is an ideal reference text for graduates and researchers.

    Features

      • Covers a global range of plants and provides many examples.
      • Boxes inform the reader about ecological issues, applications, experimental techniques, and medicines.
      • Key concepts at the start of each chapter highlight important learning outcomes.
      • Further reading at the end of each chapter guides readers to significant papers.
      • Artwork freely available from www.garlandscience.com.

    Reviews

      "...much more than a suite of biochemical reactions and it offers a fascinating vision of the living plant cell. Its reasonable size and price (£41.99) are further qualities. This is clearly a textbook to recommend without any hesitation to students and their teachers." Plant Science
