Editorial Reviews


"...In view of the huge compilation of literature, large part being otherwise unaccessible, and of the relatively good quality of text and illustrations, I do warmly recommend this book to everyone engaged in phytohormone research."

From the Back Cover

Plants possess the ability to biosynthesize a large variety of steroids, but it was not until 1979 that a hormonal function for these substances was demonstrated in plants. Today, more than 40 structurally and functionally related steroids, known as brassinosteroids, have been isolated from natural sources. Because brassinosterods demonstrate various kinds of regulatory activities in the growth and development of plants, and are promising compounds for environmentally friendly approaches to plant protection and increasing crop yields, they have attracted the attention of specialists in the fields of synthetic and analytical chemistry, biochemistry, plant physiology, and agriculture. Most of the more than 1000 publications on brassinosteroids, including literature previously available only in Russian journals and patents, were considered in compiling this comprehensive and up-to-date reference. Unpublished data from the authors' laboratories are also included.

Brassinosteroids: A New Class of Plant Hormones covers:

Structures and classification
Isolation and spectroscopic determination
Biosynthesis and metabolism
Natural product synthesis
Physiological mode of action
Structure-activity relationships
Practical applications in agriculture
