Plants, like all living organisms, communicate through a sophisticated language that is often hidden from the naked eye. At the heart of this intricate communication network are phytohormones, the silent orchestrators of growth, development, and response to environmental cues. In New Insights into Phytohormones, we embark on a journey deep into the molecular realm of plants, unraveling the mysteries of these powerful signaling molecules. Dive into the fascinating world of phytohormones as this book takes you on an exploration of their roles in plant physiology from germination to senescence. Gain a comprehensive understanding of how these chemical messengers coordinate processes such as cell elongation, flowering, and stress responses. Through the lens of cutting-edge research and real-world applications, discover the practical implications of harnessing phytohormones for agriculture, horticulture, and beyond.
