Pattern formation in plant tissues
by Sachs T. (1991)
Book Cambridge: Cambridge University Press – pp.xii + 234 pp. ref.27 pp. – ISBN :0521248655 –
The main purpose of this book is to consider the patterning of plant tissue using available concepts of the controls of patterning wherever possible, and to identify where modifications to these concepts are required, the general aim being to define broad principles concerning the specification of biological form.
This book comprises a series of related research essays, each chapter dealing with a defined problem and meant to be as self-contained as possible. Titles of the chapters are as follows: Interactions of developing organs; Hormones as correlative agents; Callus and tumor development; The polarization of tissues; The canalization of vascular differentiation; Cell lineages; Stomata as an example of meristemoid development; Expressions of cellular interactions; Apical meristems; The localization of new leaves; A temporal control of apical differentiation; and Generalizations about tissue patterning. Author and subject indexes are provided.
