Bob B. Buchanan (Editor), Claim the secrets of the Hermetica for yourself. All of the chapters have been updated and revised, and a new chapter on secondary metabolism has been included. Biochemistry & Molecular Biology of Plants is the result of years of planning, meticulous development, and editing from the top tier of plant biologists working around the world. Covers major classes of viruses and mechanisms. Its usefulness is enhanced by a very clear and visually pleasing layout and the generally high quality and clarity of the writing.

Reviews of the First Edition "The aim of the editors to blend plant biochemistry with molecular biology is successfully reached and provided a new, well written text book which is easy to read." Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second will provide a major update, include much new material and reorganise some chapters to further improve the presentation. Access codes and supplements are not guaranteed with used items. Photosynthetica What the lecturers said about the First Edition: "A very useful text with a good balance of traditional biochemistry and molecular biology.
