Cell division is a critical process in plant growth, and an understanding of how it is regulated is of both inherent scientific interest and commercial application. This volume provides an overview of the factors that influence the timing of the plant cell cycle and considers how these events may be controlled at the molecular level. The volume is directed at academic and industrial researchers in plant cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, biochemistry and molecular biology.
