It illustrates the chemistry of ROS, ROS signaling, antioxidative defense systems, transgene approaches in scavenging ROS, and the role of oxidative stress in plant recalcitrance and hyperhydricity as well as how plants orchestrate their response to morphogenesis. It also includes a brief account of the use of medicinal plants for natural antioxidants, emphasizing biochemical details.

Its presentation is neat and simple, referencing and general text and graphic formatting are consistent throughout, and it reads very well. The topics compiled complement each other. While the subject is very broad, the fundamental aspects of ROS and antioxidants along with their nature and function in plants are well addressed. In addition to the knowledge provided, the book also offers a wealth of literature to those interested in specific details about a particular aspect. Overall it is a book worth having an excellent addition to any life science library and its users. —M.W.
