Plant Physiology: A Treatise, Volume VB: Analysis of Growth: The Responses of Cells and Tissues in Culture deals with the innate capacities for growth that reside in mature organs, tissues, and cells of higher plants. The book examines the various ways, normal and abnormal, in which surviving organs, tissues, or cells from plants may grow, metabolize, and develop. The text will be of value to botanists, horticulturists, and biologists.
