The Structure and Function of Plastids
Edited by Wise, Robert R.; Hoober, J. Kenneth
This volume provides a comprehensive look at the biology of plastids, the multifunctional biosynthetic
factories that are unique to plants and algae. Fifty-nine international experts have contributed 28 chapters that cover
all aspects of this large and diverse family of plant and algal organelles.
