From the cells of aquatic algae to the majestic redwoods towering 100 metres above the California coast, the history of plant evolution has been one of increasing complexity. The new field of evo-devo (evolution of development) seeks to explain this diversity by examining the evolution of the molecular and developmental processes responsible for plant form. Professor Cronk's book surveys the structural complexity of plant form within this new framework.

Reviews for The Molecular Organography of Plants

In this book, Quentin C.B. Cronk admirably attempts to bring together a spectrum of scientific approaches. The book is a detailed compendium of the current status of plant organography from morphological, evolutionary, and developmental genetic perspectives. * Integrative and Comparative Biology * Cronk's excellent book is timely, scholarly and important, bringing together the evolution, anatomy and morphology of the major plant organs and how they develop...I would recommend this book to all botanists who need bringing up to date in this fast-moving area of research. It is an enjoyable read and excellent value at the price. * J.R Barnett, Annals of Botany *
