DescriptionThe whole plant is not the sum of its enzyme systems. This book demonstrates the importance of whole-plant physiology by examining carbon-nitrogen interactions and how these interactions are influenced by demands of the whole plant. In some aspects it is a timely response to the current, strong reductionist trends in plant physiology associated with advances in molecular biology and instrumental technology. Enzyme systems and their associated genetic controls are modulated by feedback systems associated with the functional equilibrium that exists among all plant organs. Major factors in control of this functional equilibrium are carbon-nitrogen metabolism and transport.
