An Introduction to Plant Structure and Development incorporates basic knowledge of plant anatomy with contemporary information and ideas about the development of structure and form. This textbook has been designed for undergraduates with a background in introductory botany or biology and basic knowledge of plant systematics and evolution. Descriptions of plant structure and development are integrated with discussions of the results from some of the most significant research on plant development. Topics include the integrative significance of plasmodesmata and the concept of the symplast, the concept of multicellularity, the role of cytoskeleton in development, signal transduction and the genetic control of development. Brief sections on evolution and function are also included. The book is profusely illustrated with line drawings and photographs, closely integrated with the text, which will enhance students' understanding, as will the comprehensive glossary. Extensive bibliographies provide the basis for in-depth study in major areas by students and researchers.
