The techniques of mass spectroscopy, whereby chemical substances are identified by their molecular masses, have found increasing applications in recent years and are very widely used on plants. The information presented in this book illustrates basic principles, techniques, and potentialcapabilities of mass spectroscopy for the plant scientist studying biologically important molecules. Emphasis is given to new applications.
T. J. Walton, Lecturer, Biochemistry Group, both at the University College, Swansea.

Editorial Reviews

`'...The focus of the book is a nice blend of a little history plus some projections as to future directions, but it is devoted primarily to examples of MS use today...the book is well written and attractive; data figures are excellent and mass spectra are usually superimposed with thepertinent chemical structure. Advanced students and cross-disciplinary reserachers at the biology-chemistry interface should find this book rewarding.''Timoth C. Morton,Plant Science Bulletin, vol.43, no.4, Winter 1997.
