The Flowering Process covers the physiological processes involved in the conversion from the vegetative to the reproductive state in higher plants. This book is composed of ten chapters, and begins with a description of the biological framework of flowering. The succeeding chapters deal with the link between ecology and the flowering process and the low temperature promotion of flowering. These topics are followed by discussions on methods of experimentation with cocklebur and the preparation of plant for response to photo period. Other chapters describe the effect of light, pigment, and timing on flowering process. The final chapters consider the synthesis, movement, and action of the flowering hormone. This book will prove useful to graduate students with subjects related to the mechanisms of flowering.
