Description

In recent years, different studies have shown that Nitric Oxide plays a crucial role in the development of plants. NO acts as a signalling molecule which is required at each step of the plant life cycle including synthesis, regulating seed germination, nitrogen fixation, stress conditions and growth. Nitric oxide: An ancient molecule with emerging roles in plant biology is an extensive volume which provides a broad and detailed overview of NO in plant biology. This book contains important updates and discusses the emerging roles of NO, including NO production, NO signalling, NO homeostasis, crosstalk and stress responses. Edited by leading experts in the field and featuring the latest research from laboratories from across the globe, this promises to be a much-needed, broad and updated resource on Nitric Oxide in plant physiology.
