About the Authors
  • The topic of fruit and seed production is given a broad and comprehensive treatment, with chapters covering the onset of flowering through to the development and growth of fruits and seeds, and finally to ecological and evolutionary aspects of fruiting.

    • A thorough general overview of the subject
    • An introduction to the various aspects of flowering and fruiting
    • Based on a meeting held at the Environmental Physiology Group of the Society of Experimental Biology

    Reviews & endorsements

    "To challenge the reader to even try to understand the complexity of reproductive development of plants is a formidable task. Yet, the 11 chapters of this book do so admirably by presenting a palatable and potent distillate of the essentials of nature and control of plant reproduction." T. T. Kozlowski, BioScience

    "...quite likely that this book may fill a niche in a course in plant reproductive biology, particularly since it brings together quite a bit of information on the later stages of plant reproduction." Judith Thomas, Plant Science Bulletin
