Annual plant reviews series; v.24


Plant hormones--signaling molecules--were first discovered in the 18th and 19th centuries, but their chemical identification progressed only slowly until the final decades of the 20th. Enough information is now available that a review of the current status was deemed appropriate. Biological scientists from around the world detail several specific hormones, their function, and what is yet to learn about them. They also discuss hormone distribution and transport, reproductive development, and seed development and germination.
