About this series
Progress in Botany is devoted to all the colourful aspects of plant biology. The annual volumes consist of invited reviews spanning the fields of molecular genetics, cell biology, physiology, comparative morphology, systematics, ecology, biotechnology and vegetation science, and combine the depth of the frontiers of research with considerable breadth of view. Thus, they establish unique links in a world of increasing specialization. Progress in Botany is engaged in fostering the progression from broad information to advanced knowledge and finally deepened understanding. All chapters are thoroughly peer-reviewed.
