Abscisic Acid in Plants, Volume 92, the latest release in the Advances in Botanical Research series, is a compilation of the current state-of-the-art on the topic. Chapters in this new release comprehensively describe latest knowledge on how ABA functions as a plant hormone. They cover topics related to molecular mechanisms as well as the biochemical and chemical aspects of ABA action: hormone biosynthesis, catabolism, transport, perception, signaling in plants, seeds and in response to biotic and abiotic stresses, hormone evolution and chemical biology, and much more.

About the Serial Volume Editors

Annie Marion-Poll

Annie Marion-Poll
Annie Marion-Poll is a research director at INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research) in Versailles, France. During her early career, she studied nitrate assimilation in tobacco-related species. Then, as a team leader, she developed genetic and molecular biology approaches, first in tobacco and then in Arabidopsis thaliana, for the identification of genes encoding enzymes of the abscisic biosynthesis pathway. She also worked at a better understanding of the regulation of ABA metabolism in seeds and plant stress adaptation. Her current research aims at deciphering molecular processes involved in the hormonal control of seed dormancy and germination.
