Ethylene and Plant Development documents the Proceedings of the Thirty-ninth University of Nottingham Easter School in Agricultural Science, held at Sutton Bonington on 26-30 March 1984. The conference was entitled ""Ethylene and Plant Development"" and included a workshop, organized in conjunction with the Association of Applied Biologists, on the ""Practical control of ethylene in fruit, vegetables, and flowers."" This volume contains a mixture of review and research papers thus giving a thorough coverage on the subject. The workshop reviewed the practical methods and advantages of either applying ethylene to, or removing ethylene from, various commercial products. The rest of the conference dealt with the more fundamental aspects of ethylene synthesis and action during the developmental processes in which the gas is active. Emphasis was particularly placed on the effects of ethylene on gene expression and cell development since advances in these areas may eventually lead to a more scientifically-based control of ethylene levels and action within the plant.
