Summary Provides information on synthesis of plant hormones, how their concentrations are regulated, and how they modulate various plant processes. This book details how plants sense and tolerate such factors as drought, salinity, and cold temperature, factors that limit plant productivity on earth. It also explains how plants sense light and gravity
