The book is intended as a guide for molecular biology students, equipping them to successfully study plants. It pursues a holistic approach, viewing the whole plant as an integrated operating organism, and is written in a straightforward manner, making it appealing to anyone interested in plants. Further, it reflects the latest findings for scientists and students in the fields of plant sciences, biology, agriculture, forestry, ecology, vascular medicine and cancer, discussing e.g. how hormonal signals induce and regulate simple and complex patterns in plants vascular tissues, their adaptation and evolution. * written by a world-renowned expert who has worked in the field for 50 years * covers the field from the initial studies conducted more than a century ago up to recent studies with up-to-date explanations * describes in details the structure, development, physiology and basic molecular biology of plants’ vascular tissues, their function, regeneration and environmental adaptation * explores the controlling mechanisms of plant vascular differentiation by continuously moving hormonal signals and their precursors * discusses the regulation of stem cells and cambium, control of gradients in vascular cell size along the plant, juvenile-adult transition and rejuvenation, grafting, mechanisms of recovery from bending by reaction wood, evolution of vessels and fibers from tracheids, regulation of ring-porous wood evolution, protecting mechanisms against insects and pathogens, parasitism, plant cancer, and more * helps readers understand the scope and breadth of plant vascular systems in 20 detailed, high-quality chapters * includes a wealth of outstanding original color photographs and illustrations documenting the formation of vascular tissues * provides an in-depth understanding of plant biology by studying their vascular tissues
