Quentin Cronk was educated at the University of Cambridge where he became a Fellow of Corpus Christi College. He subsequently taught at the Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh before taking up his present position as Professor in Plant Science at the University of British Columbia, Canada.
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 *
