  • Most comprehensive book about plant genomes on the market
  • Contributes to the understanding of genetic evolution and variety
  • Detailly describes the mechanism of evolution
  • Edited and written by international experts
  • Interesting for all plant scientist and molecular biologists alike
  • Best addition to the first Volume on Plant Genome Diversity, Volume1 - plant genomes their residents and evolutionary dynamics

This second of two volumes on Plant Genome Diversity provides, in 20 chapters, insights into the structural evolution of plant genomes with all its variations. Starting with an outline of plant phylogeny and its reconstruction, the second part of the volume describes the architecture and dynamics of the plant cell nucleus, the third examines the evolution and diversity of the karyotype in various lineages, including angiosperms, gymnosperms and monilophytes. The fourth part presents the mechanisms of polyploidization and its biological consequences and significance for land plant evolution. The fifth part deals with genome size evolution and its biological significance. Together with Volume I, this comprehensive book on the plant genome is intended for students and professionals in all fields of plant science, offering as it does a convenient entry into a burgeoning literature in a fast-moving field.
