Kranz anatomy and C4 photosynthesis
Key Features:Authored and edited by esteemed and well-known expert researchers within the industryNo other publication to date describes options for engineering a major change in the fundamental biology of the world's most important crop. Because rice feeds half of the world's population, advances in C4 research will have a great impact on the campaign to end world hunger. It is also a trailblazer for research on other important cropsCovers a wide range of scientific/technical topics, including various alternatives for achieving C4 photosynthesis in rice, opportunities for practical application, and social and economic ramifications of the research
