"...the book is an excellent review on what has been done in this field and a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, agronomists and foresters. The illustration of the book is adequately done by monochrome pictures especially in the structure related chapters and by diagrams redrawn from original papers with uniform labeling." --Wolfgang Ruhle, JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
