Five years ago, the first edition of the Plant Molecular Biology Manual appeared. At that time, the editors felt that the field of plant molecular biology had matured to a point that the publication of a series of protocols in plant molecular biology was warranted. During the past five years, the field of plant molecular biology has expanded rapidly. This expansion is, among other things, reflected by the presence of several journals in the plant sciences, as well as by the increasing amount of plant sciences articles that are published in the more general journals. In 1991 approximately 3000 people attended the Third International Congress of Plant Molecular Biology in Tucson, Arizona, where more than 2000 posters were presented. It is also remarkable to see that nowadays botanical and physiological meetings pay a considerable amount of attention to plant molecular biology. Since the first edition of this manual appeared, we have published, yearly, a series of supplements to the original volume. These supplements covered new subjects and described new methods that had been developed. With time, however, the editors realized that the original manual plus supplements had become cumbersome to use, and we decided to publish a reorganized version of the manual.

Works cited in this useful survey are appropriate for students, librarians, and amateur and professional botanists. These encompass the plant kingdom in all its divisions and aspects, except those of agriculture, horticulture, and gardening. The majority of the annotations are for currently available in-print or electronic reference works. A comprehensive author/title and a separate subject index make locating specific entries simple. With materials ranging from those selected for the informed layperson to those for the specialist, this new edition reflects the momentous transition from print to electronic information resources. It is an appropriate purchase for public, college, university, and professional libraries.

Plant tissue culture has a long history, dating back to the work of Gottlieb Haberlandt and others at the end of the 19th century, but the associated concepts and techniques have reached a level of usefulness and application which has never been greater. The technical innovations have given new insights into fundamental aspects of plant differentiation and development, and have paved the way to the identification of strategies for the genetic manipula tion of plants. It is the aim of this manual to deliver a broad range of these techniques in a form which is accessible to students and research scientists of diverse backgrounds, including those with little or no previous experience. The themes of the manual aim to reflect those research areas which have been advanced by tissue culture technology. As was the case for the sister volume Plant Molecular Biology Manual, the objective has been from the start to produce a manual which is at home on the laboratory bench. The plastic-covered, ring-bound format has proved to be most popular and is retained here. Equally, the emphasis has been on producing a collection of detailed step-by-step protocols, each supplemented with an introductory text and practical footnotes, to provide the next best thing to a supervisor at one's shoulder.
