From the reviews:
"...a comprehensive account of our current knowledge of ethylene ... The strength of the book is that it brings together a large amount of information on microbial ethylene, and in this respect it is unique.
(P. John in Annals of Botany Company, 2002)
"In conclusion, the book can be recommended to anyone with an interest in "Plant Science", teachers, graduate students and plant scientists (whether working or not on ethylene) who would like to have an extended and comprehensive view of the role of ethylene in areas such as plant microbe interactions, soil science and applied aspects of the use of ethylene in agriculture, areas other than plant physiology per se."
(Plant Science, 162, 2002)
"The main emphasis of this book is on the microbial production of ethylene and its effects on plant growth. Each chapter is well-written and has adequate figures and tables to support the essence of the material presented in the text. There are extensive references at the end of each chapter. Although the book was published in 2001, there are few references beyond 2000. [...] the vast amount of information presented in this book on the microbial production of ethylene, and the activity of ethylene in soil, symbiosis, and pathogenesis make the book well worth acquiring. While this book will be valuable to anyone interested in the biology of ethylene, the book may be of more use to soil scientists and plant pathologists than to horticulturists. [Ethylene: Agricultural Sources and Applications] gives a thorough background on our current knowledge of ethylene in plant biology and is an excellent reference to the synthesis and action of ethylene in microbes."
