The plant cell contains a number of well-defined membranes and membrane systems. The plasma membrane forms the barrier between the cytoplasm and the cell exterior, and as such it regulates the exchange of nutrients, acts as the receptor for environmental signals, and helps protect the cellagainst pathogen attack. This book contains twenty-three chapters by leading researchers on the structure, biogenesis, transport mechanisms, signal transduction, and enzymology of plant cell membranes, providing insight into new and recent developments in the field.
Peter Brodelius, Department of Plant Biochemistry, both at Lund University.

Editorial Reviews

`The book is of high interest to all plant biologists and biochemists and should be present in general libraries and in those of plant biology institutions.'Hartmut Lichtenthaler, Journal of Plant Physiology, vol. 151 (1997)
