The rapid advances in elucidating the biosynthesis and mode of action of the plant hormone ethylene, as well as its involvement in the regulation of the whole plant physiology, made imperative the organization of a series of dedicated conferences. This volume contains the main lectures and poster contributions presented at the 7th International Symposium on the Plant Hormone Ethylene held in Pisa in 2006.

Plant hormones are among the most essential biochemicals found in plants. Since Charles and Francis Darwin identified auxin action, several plant hormones have been discovered. These small signaling molecules regulate not only developmental and growth activities, but also stress responses throughout the plant’s life cycle. This book discusses recent advances, new perspectives, and applications of plant hormones. It is a useful resource for academics, scientists, students, and industry professionals.

The present volume contains the proceedings of the international symposium on Cellular and Molecular Aspects of Biosynthesis and Action of the Plant Hormone Ethylene, held in Agen, France, 1992. Since the last meetings in Israel (1984) and in Belgium (1988), ethylene physiology has gone through a period of exciting progress due to new developments in cellular and molecular biology. New methods and tools have been developed to better understand the role and functions of ethylene in fruit ripening, flower senescence, abscission, plant growth, and cell differentiation. Genes involved in ethylene biosynthesis have been characterized and transgenic plants with altered ethylene production have been generated. The feasibility of delaying fruit ripening or flower senescence by genetic manipulation has now been demonstrated, thus opening new perspectives for the post-harvest handling of plant products. Some progress has also been made on the understanding of ethylene action. However, much remains to be done in this area to elucidate the ethylene transduction pathway.

This book focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the signal transduction pathway of ethylene, its interaction with other hormones and its roles in biological processes. It discusses at which point plants could have acquired ethylene signaling from an evolutionary perspective. Ethylene was the first gaseous hormone to be identified and triggers various responses in higher plants. Our grasp of ethylene signaling has rapidly expanded over the past two decades, due in part to the isolation of the components involved in the signal transduction pathway. The book offers a helpful guide for plant scientists and graduate students in related areas.

With the demonstration of the "triple response" in plants by Neljubow at the turn of the century, ethylene has been identified as a substance specifically affecting plant growth. Yet it took a few more decades to show that ethylene is a naturally occurring product of plants having all the characteristics of a phytohormone. Ever since much effort has been devoted to a wide variety of physiological and biochemical problems relevant to ethylene. A first meeting was organized in Israel in 1984 to bring together many people active in this rapidly expanding field of experimental research. It is the aim of the present symposium to provide once more a forum at which researchers might expose and comment progress in their work over the last few years. Speakers were invi ted and their contri buti ons ordered ina number of sessions, each of which was centered on a particular topiC. Much of the benefit came from ensuing discussion sessions which were conducted with much competence and expertise by Anderson, Ben-Arie, Goren, Morgan and Osborne. All of these colleagues are recognized leaders in ethylene research today and the organizers owe a very special gratitude to them for their substantial contribution to the programme. It is well to remember the friendly atmosphere, so essential to the success of the whole meeting and so much enjoyed by every partiCipant. Prompt publi ca tion of the papers was made possi ble by the camera-ready procedure offered by the publisher.

The Chemistry and Biochemistry of Plant Hormones: Recent Advances in Phytochemistry, Volume 7 provides an understanding of the chemistry and biochemistry of plant hormones. This book discusses the presents the experiments and techniques that lead to a deeper understanding of the mode of action of plant hormones. Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview on gibberellins wherein isolation and characterization techniques are emphasized. This text then examines the status of cytokinin chemistry with emphasis on methods of structure elucidation, synthesis, and structure–activity relations. Other chapters consider the synergistic effects possible when workers from various areas are able to collaborate. This book discusses as well the chemistry of abscisic acid. The final chapter deals with the suggested paths for the biosynthesis of ethylene, which would facilitate work on the regulation of ethylene biosynthesis. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, biophysicists, photobiologists, plant physiologists, and research workers.

The Plant Hormone Ethylene: Stress Acclimation and Agricultural Applications presents current knowledge on our understanding of ethylene reception and signaling, its role in the regulation of plant physiological processes, and its contribution to acclimation in stressful environments. In persistently changing environmental conditions, several stress factors influence cellular metabolism, ultimately causing reduced plant growth and development with a significant loss in agricultural productivity. Sustainable agriculture depends on the acclimation of plant processes to the changing environment through altered physiological and molecular responses, which are controlled by plant hormones, including ethylene. Ethylene, the simplest alkene, is also known as "the volatile hormone,” one of the most critical hormones in plants. It is a signaling molecule with the ability to modulate several responses at the molecular level in plants, from various processes related to plant growth and development (from seed germination to senescence), to several responses to changing environmental conditions (including both biotic and abiotic stresses). As a plant hormone involved in several physiological and biochemical processes that are tightly connected with the yield of agriculture crops, ethylene can interact with primary and secondary metabolism of plants affecting both yield and quality. Provides state-of-the art insights into ethylene regulated photosynthesis, growth and productivity in crop plants Presents regulatory mechanisms of ethylene action Assists in developing physio-molecular strategies for augmenting crop performance in changing climates
