"Chapter 2 was a joy to read. What a treasure trove of plant genetics information and examples ! The chapter should stimulate interest in undergraduates and lay the foundation for graduate students at the outset of their careers. It would also be a terrific primer for Ph.D. prelim exams." - Patrick Hayes, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, USA "This is the most comprehensive and well written text book chapter on plant biology I have ever encountered. The coverage is incredible, and the title "metabolism" is taken in its broadest sense! I found the quality of the figures excellent. They were sufficiently stand alone to be useful in this way while being well discussed in the text." - Bob Furbank, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Canberra, Australia, writing about Chapter 4 "As a textbook, Plant Biology's pedagogic values are very high!. Plant Biology is new and sufficiently different to existing texts to warrant closer inspection!.Smith et al.'s Plant Biology is a great achievement, and the authors and publishers are to be complimented on such a worthy endeavour." -Annals of Botany, September 2009
