Over the last two decades there have been significant advances in scientists' understanding of how biochemical pathways are regulated and how gene expression is regulated by feedback signaling from metabolism. To build this new information into a wider understanding of carbohydrate metabolism in plants in general requires the drawing together of some classical information together with more recently discovered information. "Carbohydrate Metabolism in Plants" draws this newly discovered information together so that the reader can easily gain knowledge of the present state of the art. The book also provides easy access to relevant information in older studies. The editor of the book, Dr Mike Burrell has drawn together an impressive set of international contributors each providing cutting edge review chapters, drawn together to provide a well-edited and coherent overview of this important area. Chapters include coverage of the enzymes of starch synthesis and breakdown, the metabolic control of starch breakdown in storage tissues, pathways of starch breakdown in chloroplasts, co-valent enzyme modification and developpmental regulation of starch synthesis, sugar transporters, carbon partitioning, sugar signaling, glycosyl transferases and cell wall extensibility. "Carbohydrate Metabolism in Plants" is an essential reference book for plant scientists, physiologists, biochemists, molecular and cell biologiusts and all those involved in studying and teaching plant sciences. Libraries in universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught will need copies of this important book.
