Plant Transporters, Volume 87, the latest release in the Advances in Botanical Research series, brings together the experiences and critical information teachers, researchers and managers must consider from scientific and legal points-of-view as they relate to biotechnology. New chapters in this updated volume include sections on P-type ATPases, ABC transporters, Nitrate transport, Metal transporters, Hormone transporters, Plant aquaporins, Ion channel regulation in guard cells, Ion transport in pollen tube growth, Xylem loading under stress, and Transporters during arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis.

Key Features

  • Encompasses various aspects of the GMO debate (its historical background, current status, recent research outcomes, potential future developments)
  • Written by highly competent authors from all continents
  • Based on facts and written in a dispassionate and non-polemical tone


High School teachers; University lecturers and professors; researchers (primarily in plant field); governmental (or supra governmental like European Commission) or International organization (like FAO, etc.) officers involved in food or environmental safety or in biotechnology regulation; science journalists; farmer organizations (like NFU in the UK)
