<b>HERBICIDES AND PLANT PHYSIOLOGY</b> <p><b>Discover the latest developments in herbicide and weed biology</b> <p>In the newly revised Third Edition of <i>Herbicides and Plant Physiology,</i> distinguished researcher Professor Dr. Andrew H. Cobb delivers an insightful and comprehensive examination of the interaction between herbicides and plant physiology. The book discusses many of the advances in plant physiology, utilizing data from the<i> Arabidopsis</i> genome, and gene editing techniques that have occurred in the last dozen years. <p>This latest edition includes a variety of new and recent references addressing the latest developments in plant research. In addition to a complete introduction to weed biology, the book discusses the modern plant protection industry and the processes by which herbicides are discovered and developed. <p>Readers will find discussions of new targets for the future development of new herbicides, as well as the mechanisms by which modern herbicides interact with plants and achieve their weed control objectives. <p>The book also offers: <ul><li>Thorough introductions to weed biology, the modern plant protection products industry, and how herbicides are discovered and developed</li> <li>Comprehensive explorations of how herbicides gain entry into the plant and move to their sites of action, as well as the basis of herbicide selectivity</li> <li>Practical discussions of how herbicides interact with the major physiological processes in plants and accomplish weed control, including the inhibition of photosynthesis, pigment biosynthesis, and more</li> <li>Reviews recent developments following the use of genetically modified-herbicide resistant crops</li></ul> <p>Perfect for plant biologists and agricultural scientists, this latest edition of <i>Herbicides and Plant Physiology</i> is an indispensable resource for anyone seeking a comprehensive and robust treatment of the latest advances in plant physiology and herbicide action.
