Plant Biochemistry presents each topic from the cellular level to the ecological and environmental levels, placing it in the context of the whole plant.

Biochemical pathways are represented as route maps, showing how one reaction follows another. These maps emphasize the dynamism and fl exibility of the plant in the face of environmental challenges. The unique and wide-ranging approach of this book emphasizes the importance of teaching and learning pathways within the framework of what the pathway does and why it is needed.

Plant Biochemistry is invaluable to undergraduate students who wish to gain insight into the relevance of plant biochemistry to humans and animals. It is an ideal reference text for graduates and researchers.
