This book provides a comprehensive and up to date account of the brassinosteroids, incorporating both theoretical and practical aspects. The contributors to this book are experts of international repute. Each chapter presents a review of the available literature and provides insight into current thinking by pointing out the limitations and gaps in the present knowledge and directing the way forward for further research. Separate chapters deal with the chemical structures, occurrence, synthesis, perception, signal transduction and practical applicability of the brassinosteroids and their analogs. The basic difference, with available reviews, here is the emphasis given to crops improvement by the application of brassinosteroids. Brassinosteroids: Bioactivity and Crop Productivity shall be a rich source of recent knowledge on brassinosteroids, for all students and researchers, particularly in the area of plant hormones, plant physiology and crop productivity
