  • Describes molecular-biological and biochemical background of auxin metabolism and its mechanism of action
  • Comprehensively divided into three parts: a general part about auxin definition and function and two specific parts treating the role of auxin in development and its interaction with the environment
  • Represents a complete state-of-the-art work on auxin research

Auxin is an important signaling compound in plants and vital for plant development and growth. The present book, Auxin and its Role in Plant Development, provides the reader with detailed and comprehensive insight into the functioning of the molecule on the whole and specifically in plant development. In the first part, the functioning, metabolism and signaling pathways of auxin in plants are explained, the second part depicts the specific role of auxin in plant development and the third part describes the interaction and functioning of the signaling compound  upon stimuli of the environment. Each chapter is written by international experts in the respective field and designed for scientists and researchers in plant biology, plant development and cell biology to summarize the recent progress in understanding the role of auxin and suggest future perspectives for auxin research.
