Control of the Mobilization of Stored Reserves

  • J. Derek Bewley
  • Michael Black


The majority of work on the control of mobilization of stored reserves has been carried out on cereal grains, although in recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the control mechanisms in dicot seeds. For an account of mobilization per se, the reader is directed to Chapter 7.
