As one of the major constituents of plants, lipids have received considerable attention from plant biochemists. Interest has recently intensified and broadened following exciting new discoveries of particular relevance to industry, ranging from the elucidation of new biosynthetic pathways sensitive to herbicide action to the successful genetic manipulation of the quality of food oils. This volume brings together contributions from those working on plant lipid biosynthesis, both with respect to the fundamentals of the process and also on more specifically applied aspects. Together, these contributions provide an up-to-date review of the most exciting recent advances which illustrate that the fundamental and applied approaches are complementary and synergistic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Overall this book provides a valuable review of recent advances in the field of plant lipid biosynthesis. The single contributions are self contained, well-illustrated and referenced and therefore a useful source for up-to-date information. I would recommend the book for every library in plant science institutions and to scientists who are interested in biochemistry/molecular biology of plant lipids or the genetic engineering of plants.' Claus Markstadter, Journal of Experimental Botany
' ... a useful publication for experts or senior graduate students working on plant lipids to survey recent progress in the relevant field'. Ikuo Nishida, Trends in Plant Science
' ... this volume is a useful publication for experts or senior graduate students working on plant lipids to survey recent progress in the relevant field ... the book is, in my experience, unique in having a special chapter describing what industry is requesting of academic research, and this will be helpful to those considering industrial applications.' Ikuo Nishida, Trends in Plant Science
'The book can be recommended for all experts interested in this field.' Photosynthetica
