Starting from the mechanisms of signal perception and transduction through to environmental effects, this book looks at a whole range of growth regulators, including those natural to the plants themselves, such as auxin and ethylene; and natural products from other sources, such as the fungal product fusicoccin. Regulation at all levels is considered, from initial perception of the growth signal, through transduction responses and DNA replication, to the "ultimate" level of cell expansion. The message which emerges is that no one approach is going to solve the remaining or future problems in this field; only by the efforts and collaboration of physiologists, biochemists, molecular biologists and others will progress be made.
